Finding Local Food

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our country’s food system from farm to fork. Social distancing and other response strategies have upended agricultural markets throughout the country, including local and regional markets; and transformed the way individuals and families shop for, purchase and consume food. That transformation has brought with it a big uptick of interest in buying direct from local farmers, ranchers and fisherman as a way to support struggling small and mid-sized farmers and ensure family food security.

The following is a listing of websites, guides and directories to help people find local food.
