REGIONAL FOOD ECONOMY STUDY:
A SNAPSHOT OF THE FOOD SYSTEM IN AN 11-COUNTY REGION
OF NORTHEASTERN AND EASTERN MONTANA

The Regional Food Economy Study is complete! In July 2021, Great Northern Development Corporation (GNDC) received $14,000 in grant funding from No Kid Hungry to conduct a regional food study to further understand the challenges and opportunities in our region’s food system. This study not only gave a snapshot as to what our current food system looks like but provided data and input that will help the FADC know better how to serve our region. The study assessed the counties that our FADC currently serves: Garfield, McCone, Valley, Daniels, Fallon, Sheridan, Roosevelt, Dawson, Prairie, Wibaux, and Carter.

We were thankful to partner with the Montana Food & Ag Development Center Network,  Eastern Plains Economic Development Corporation, Latta Consultants, and Kate Burnaby Wright to make this study happen.
