Local Foods

Kansas River Valley Foods>Banner1.jpg

Welcome to the Kansas River Valley
Local Foods Initiative website!


The goals of the initiative are:

  • Promote rural renaissance of locally produced farm and value added products, keeping revenue in the region.
  • Survey potential institutional buyers of local foods.


Historically, Kansas produced enough fruits and vegetables to feed its citizens, and also to export to other states. Currently, we produce less than 5% of our consumption needs.
