The Beet Food Systems Consortium

The Beet Food System Consortium is a community-based coalition seeded with representation from multiple organizations and community members formed to increase access, engagement, and education while mitigating barriers discovered within Coos County.  The Beet exists to strengthen access to food and nutrition education in Coos County. TBFSC envisions a thriving county where residents are connected to a resilient food system.
