South Sound Food System Network

The South Sound Food System Network (SSFSN) brings together three coalitions, to combine their collective efforts – Thurston Asset Building Coalition Food Hub, Thurston Thrive Food Action Team and Thurston Food System Council. While originally formed to promote slightly different causes within the food system, by coming together and meeting as one network, they leverage their strengths to form a highly effective collaboration.

The South Sound Food System Council serves as the Food Action Team of Thurston Thrives. Visit their Facebook page.


People eat healthfully.


An example of the way food affects health includes decreased risk of obesity and chronic diseases through an increased consumption of fruits and vegetables.  Access to safe and healthy foods and an environment in which the healthy choice is the easy choice also improve the potential for a healthful diet, in turn leading to improved or maintained good health.
