Urban Food Link Winds Down
~ Partners launching new initiatives
After seven years of advocacy to raise awareness of food systems issues, we are announcing that Urban Food Link will be closing our doors at the end of June. We are so proud of all that we’ve been able to accomplish, and we are excited about building on our work in new ways.
When we started this work in 2003, no one in local government was talking about “food systems” or “local food economies” or even “food security.” Today the City of Seattle has a food policy adviser and participates in the Puget Sound Regional Food Policy Council thanks in large part to the work of Urban Food Link and the many organizations working at the intersection of public health and community economic development.
We want to thank all of you for allowing us to be a part of the incredible work you do. We’ve been humbled by the faith you put in us to help your communities. As we both move on to new adventures, we hope our work together will continue to bring opportunity and good health to your communities.
