The Palouse Tables Project is a community food planning project for Whitman and Latah Counties. This planning project includes reaching out to several towns in both urban and rural areas and asking communities what their dreams about food include. This might be making sure everyone has enough healthy food to eat, sustainable local food production, the capacity to process food, or greater partnerships across the region. Accomplishing these dreams can include projects like farm-to-fork programs, edible landscapes, or community or school gardens. We are inviting community members in Colfax to this community meeting to share their dreams with us and network with others with similar dreams.
