About Blaine County Food Council
Founded in 2015, Blaine County Food Council (BCFC) is a grassroots group made up local food system advocates from University of Idaho, Local Food Alliance, The Hunger Coalition, St. Luke’s Wood River, city and county officials, farmers, nutritionists, and others. After working for two years on the Blaine County Food Assessment, we formed the council as an action group to carry out our collective food-system goals in our county.
We strive to integrate all aspects of our local food system to promote efficient, resource-conscious approaches in all phases: production, processing, distribution, access, consumption and recovery.
Blaine County Food Council’s shared vision of access to fresh nutritious food for our valley demands collective action.
