Our Vision: The Town of South Windsor will promote a Healthy Food System by supporting local farms, the farmers’ market, community gardens, increased use of town owned land for farming, food waste composting, green roof projects, restaurants buying local produce, edible schoolyards, a food-hub and food co-op store.
Our Mission: The mission of the South Windsor FOOD Alliance is to create a Healthy Food System in order to promote the sale of locally grown foods and create new ventures to support local farming.
Our Purpose: The purpose of this project is to increase awareness of the health benefits of eating locally grown foods and make the connection between where our food comes from and the local farms that have been an important link in the history of the town. Since we proposed this plan, some components have been included in the Town of South Windsor’s Master Plan for Conservation and Development. The FOOD Alliance Master Plan is a working document and will be updated and reviewed to evaluate new ideas presented each year.
