Raise Your Voice for Local Food

Earth Day 2014 is the Official Kick-off of Raise Your Fork Washington! A new organization inviting your involvement

You’ve heard the phrase “Vote with your fork“ when it comes to supporting your local farmers and choosing organic and locally processed foods for you and your family, but until now there really hasn’t been a statewide organization for consumers like you who are concerned about your local food system. Organic and sustainable farmers have organizations they can join that help to educate and empower them. Now it’s your turn! Raise Your Fork Washington! is a new, statewide, non-profit, membership organization open to everyone who cares about local foods.

We’ll be involved in local foods enterprise development and youth entrepreneurship programs, home kitchens and other kitchens to process more WA-grown produce. We’ll be setting up grassroots affiliates in every WA county. We’ll be standing up for your rights to choose the foods you think are best for you. Together, we will help preserve farmland and revitalize local food systems throughout the state. Please explore our website to find out more and JOIN!
