The Mountain Harvest Coalition, in partnership with the Vail Valley Salvation Army, aims to foster healthy food access in Eagle County and the surrounding region. We grow community and confidence when we support sustainable food practice through education, outreach, and partnership.
The Mountain Harvest Coalition creates an environment of support and understanding within the community around issues of healthy food access. We network across sectors to involve and engage all demographics as we work together to build sustainable local food systems. We integrate culturally appropriate strategies, honor our wealth of local agriculture, and listen to the needs of local businesses and community leaders.
The Mountain Harvest Coalition is engaging non-profits, local government, community outreach organizations, local businesses, farmers and ranchers within the region, religious organizations, and
Colorado State University Extension. We seek to partner with all organizations, understanding the common goal of creating a sustainable local food system doesn’t happen without teamwork. Community first!
We need you! This is your community! Get involved! We welcome everyone and are always open to new ideas. This year brings many exciting opportunities to become a Mountain Harvester.
