Port Susan Food & Farming Center plans launched; survey available

Mar 12th, 2011 | Category: News

SNOHOMISH – Slow Food Port Susan is organizing  a new cooperative food processing center under development in Snohomish County, according to the website www.portsusanfoodandfarmingcenter.org. Plans call for the facility to be a center for agricultural production, and include retail and educational opportunities. The mission is to provide long-term vitality for the food and farming community in Stanwood/Camano Island area by providing bottling, labeling, baking, and curing access among other vital production needs. Leaders for the project include project chair Donna King, owner of Scandia Coffee House & Eatery, and Vivian Henderson, Vice President of Slow Food Port Susan. “We’re looking 20 or 50 years into the future,” King said, “to when we may not be able to afford to commute and transport goods great distances, to when we can’t afford to shop the way we do now.” Anyone currently involved in local farming or food production (or would like to be in the future) are encouraged to fill out the needs assessment survey.  The survey is available on-line until March 28 at www.surveymonkey.com/s/PortSusanCenter. For more information about the Center, visit www.portsusanfoodandfarmingcenter.org/ .
