© 2018 Food Dignity

 

Investigative team

Food Dignity was a collaboration between five community-based organizations—Blue Mountain Associates, Dig Deep Farms, East New York Farms!, Feeding Laramie Valley, and the Whole Community Project­; and four academic institutions—University of Wyoming, Cornell University, Ithaca College, and University of California Davis. The community-university liaison work was housed within Action Resources International, which is also Feeding Laramie Valley's umbrella organization.
