textitfwdbanner_augustsurveyTake this month’s survey – August 2014: Growing a Healthier Food System 
Issues connected with our current food system are the existence of “food deserts” in low-income neighborhoods, the urbanization of farmland, the poor financial health of local food enterprises, and the lack of connections between farms and markets.

Answer questions on how you think we should improve our food access and production. 

Here’s how it works:

1. Begin the survey by texting the letter of your answer to  716-791-5140
Question:    Is Buffalo Niagara moving in the right direction?

Answer:         A = Yes      B = No     C = Other

2. Answer 3-5 follow-up questions focused on different themes each month.

3. Take this survey again next month with a new set of questions (the 1st question will stay the same)
