Local Food Fellows Program

With funding provided by a Regional Food Systems Partnership Grant through the Agricultural Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, K-State Research and Extension Local Food Systems is now launching the Kansas Local Food Fellows Program. Food system partners across the state of Kansas can apply to host a fellow to work on a site-specific local food system project. The purpose of the Fellows Program is to increase capacity for local food system projects. This may jumpstart a local food policy coalition or other partner to increase outreach, engagement, and growth of organization goals. Projects may be related to, but are not restricted to research, education, marketing, or community engagement of local food system participants including producers, processors, distributors, retailers, and/or consumers.
