 “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank

Food Recovery Program

Cornucopia, partnered with SEDI (Sustainable Economic Development Initiative of Northern Arizona) for the Verde Valley and funding provided by Arizona Community Foundation of Yavapai County and United Way of Yavapai County for the Quad Cities, has launched a Food Recovery Program to rescue food surplus and food waste by farmers, grocery stores, restaurants, and facilities with central kitchens by transferring food to emergency food providers and residential programs in the Verde Valley and Quad City Areas or local compost sites. Please visit our Food Recovery page to learn so much more.

Yavapai County Food System Action Plan

What is a Food Plan? A Food Plan creates a framework for establishing local influence and greater control over our county’s food system to mobilize community investment in achieving better health for its residents through an improved food system that enhances our economy.

A Food Plan strives to achieve countywide food security and reduce hunger. Food security ensures that all residents have access to healthy food at all times. This initiative develops local resources that make healthy food available to food-insecure residents living in poverty and/or food deserts, and all other residents.
