What is the Montana Food System Infrastructure Mapping Project? 

It is a collaboration of private and public sector food system interests
using interactive maps to enable Montana's local food system stakeholders to
understand and prioritize the gaps in our regional and statewide food value
chains, and to identify the opportunities for filling those gaps.


Your perspective and knowledge are needed:

Join with others from your region to assess the progress made in the
development of your local and regional food value chain infrastructure over
the past several years, and what the next priorities for action and
investment might be. Using the interactive maps created by this statewide
project that show your area's local food producers, processors, retailers
and other food distributors and outlets, you will:


1. Look for poorly connected food system components in your area, and
brainstorm ways to connect them;


2. Identify significant gaps in your region's food system infrastructure,
and what it would take to fill those gaps, and


3. Prioritize the development needs and opportunities you've identified in
the previous steps, contributing toward what will be a statewide action
agenda for further development of Montana's food market and supply chain


Please RSVP to any of the meetings, or ask questions, by calling AERO at
