The Rogue Valley Food System Network (RVFSN) is a group of individuals, organizations, and businesses who have joined together to strengthen our local food system through a collaborative community of leadership to develop and advocate for a healthy and sustainable food system in Josephine and Jackson Counties.
The RVFSN is led by a 15-member Council that meets monthly. Meetings are open to the public. Participants in the RVFSN include: ACCESS, OSU Extension Small Farms Program, Rogue Valley Farm to School, THRIVE, Rogue Farm Corps, 1000 Friends of Oregon, AllCare, Rogue Natural Foods, Medford Food Co-op, and more.
For the second year in a row, the RVFSN has been invited to host an installation at the Jackson County Fair. If you’re not sure what the food system is or how your food finds its way to your fork, join us from July 20th - 24th at the Expo and learn a little about the journey your food takes to get to your table.
The RVFSN installation, to be located in Mace Building, will highlight our region’s food system to include connecting healthy food choices to personal health, preserving our rich farmland for food production, as well as sharing ways for everyone to engage in local agriculture and to get involved to make a difference in our community food system.
