Solano Local Food System Alliance
The Solano Local Food System Alliance includes a wide variety of stakeholders committed to fulfilling the mission of creating an environmentally sustainable, economically viable, socially just and equitable local food system in Solano County.
The Alliance began as an advisory board to assist Sustainable Solano with its USDA Local Food Promotion Program project.
The Alliance strives to represent all components of the local food system.

The Solano Local Food System Alliance held its first quarterly meeting of 2020 to continue its collaborative effort to foster a strong local food system within the county.
Sustainable Solano has received a “Specialty Crop Block Program” grant from the California Department of Food and Agriculture. From farm-to-institution to public awareness, learn what that means for the county.
Solano Local Food System Alliance work is made possible by a grant from Solano County Public Health in partnership with the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation.
