Regional Food System Grant Program Evaluation Findings and Recommendations


From 2022-2023, Cardea partnered with King Conservation District and community partners to plan and implement a mixed-methods evaluation of its Regional Food Systems Grant Program. This final report summarizes what we learned about the program, including strengths and opportunities for growth in support of more equitable and impactful grant processes and investments. This work will influence changes to program operations in 2024 and beyond.
