Fruits Meat Crops Community Partner Leads


Juneau County plans to partner with local producers to combat food insecurity in the region. The Improving Food Resiliency and Food Insecurity in Juneau County project seeks to distribute food through home-delivered meals, pop-up community events, and micro-Community Sustained Agriculture (CSAs) featuring value-added items like honey, syrup, and jams. The micro-CSAs will vary seasonally based on available produce. 

Facing health challenges, with a 37% adult obesity rate, and limited grocery stores, Juneau County aims to address food deserts and associated chronic health issues. The project adopts micro-CSAs to navigate rural challenges, tracking distributions through surveys and evaluations to ensure participant satisfaction and improve the local food system. Cooking demonstrations, both in-person and online, will contribute to community engagement and capture success stories, enhancing the project's holistic approach to promoting fresh and healthy foods while addressing underlying health disparities.
