What we do.

Our multi-stakeholder partnership designs food policies and programs that train farmers, strengthen local supply chains, increase local food access, reduce waste, and educate the public. RFSA successes include:

The Riverside Food and Agriculture Policy Action Plan was officially adopted by the City of Riverside (2014).
The annual GrowRIVERSIDE Conference, with year-round workshops and community events (since 2015).
A Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant to participate in the Invest Health Initiative (www.investhealth.org) (2016).
A pilot food hub through Riverside Unified School District (2017).
A regional food rescue and waste prevention pilot program funded by the California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery (2018).
