Community Projects

 
 

The Wood River Valley believes in a community-based food system.

Our individual council members contribute to our food system in so many different ways. Here are some examples of the projects our members are involved in. 

 

Hillside Ranch Flour & Grain

Brett Stevenson, and her family's Hillside Ranch Flour & Grain hopes to serve the entire community with high-quality, naturally grown flour and grains. Their wheat & barley berries have been used at the Wood River Valley HarvestFest and will be available in retail locations in winter of 2019.

The Hunger Coalition is working hard at growing food, and growing opportunity for all members of our community. They strive to meet the needs of the underserved populations, but have realized their mission affects the whole community. Through Volunteer for Veggies, The Bloom Youth Project, and a variety of community groups and individuals, The Bloom Community Farm offers a place for all to gather around fresh, healthy food.

Nectar & pollen  

Jamie Truppi, functional nutritionist and food educator, works with kids and adults of all ages to educate and bring awareness to how nutrition, behaviors and lifestyle contribute to wellbeing. She recently created NECTAR & POLLEN, an edible education curriculum for preschools in our community. This Farm to Early Care and Education toolkit will guide a one-year pilot program in collaboration with Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and University of Idaho Extension.
