About Us

Our Vision: The Town of South Windsor is promoting 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 sales of locally grown foods and create new ventures to support local farming.

Our Purpose: The purpose of this project is to increase awareness regarding the health benefits of eating locally grown foods and to 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. We have proposed this plan and components of plan have been included in the Town of South Windsor’s Master Plan for Conservation and Development. This plan is a working document and  will be updated and reviewed annually to evaluate new ideas presented to the South Windsor FOOD Alliance.
