The Food System Action Plan (FSAP) is a regional food system investment strategy that will identify best practices, priorities, prevailing challenges, opportunities, and funding recommendations related to the region’s food system for the communities of El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo Counties. The goal is to increase the vitality of the region’s food system and to identify financing strategies and mechanisms to support a more equitable and accessible food system for all residents of the Greater Sacramento Region.
Valley Vision is convening listening and input sessions in topical areas as an opportunity to identify funding, capacity, and resource needs in the region’s Food System. The sessions are open to all interested and will directly inform the 2021 Food System Action Plan.
This session, Careers in Food & Agriculture, will cover workforce pipelines and skills pathways for new farmers and food producers; middle-skills job training and upskilling; ag-tech skills; issues of concern for farmworkers, and other related topics.
