Wisconsin Food Project

“Innovating Alternative Strategies to Help Move Food From

Wisconsin Farms to Wisconsin Forks”

 

The Wisconsin Food Project is a solution-based task force on the UW-Madison campus working on developing a re-localized supply chain that:

  1. Makes locally produced food more affordable and accessible
  2. Benefits Wisconsin farmers
  3. Reduces food loss

Primary responsibilities of the Wisconsin Food Project include:

  1. Producing, procuring, and minimally processing staple food crops such as locally grown grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables
  2. Selling crops and products to students at a pop-up retail market (forthcoming) on campus
  3. Providing students with educational resources and information to increase consumer self-sufficiency and food literacy
