Completion of surveys needed for Lake County Community Food Assessment

LAKE COUNTY – A Community Food Assessment for Lake County has begun and two surveys are under way to help discern what food items are currently being grown and produced locally, as well as the potential demand for those products at retail and institutional outlets locally.


The information collected will be used to inform a local food guide and an effort towards a coordinated online ordering and distribution system for local food producers and buyers.


The surveys can be taken online at http://lccfa.wikispaces.com . Those without Internet access may take the survey or request a copy by contacting Lake County Community Food Assessment information line at 707-995-9060.


Copies of the producer survey is also available at the Agricultural Commissioner’s office at the Lake County Agricultural Center in Lakeport and both surveys are available in the Lake County Administration office at the Courthouse in Lakeport, or downloaded from the Web site.


Deadline to fill out the surveys is Oct. 25.


Having the surveys completed by all Lake County producers and buyers is critically important for the success of this project.


For more information about the Lake County Community Food Assessment, contact JoAnn Saccato at 707-350-1719, or Terre Logsdon at 707-263-2580.


With a grant award to Sutter Lakeside Hospital from the California Endowment on behalf of the Health Leadership Network (HLN), the HLN is able to fund this project with administrative support provided by the Lake County Marketing and Economic Development Program.
