Movers & Shakers
This year, Just Local Foods and VEDA would like to use National Food Day as a way to highlight the amazing efforts already happening in the Driftless area, and to connect everyone's efforts under one umbrella. We have gathered together a number of these amazing businesses and organizations to share their passion and efforts with you all on this special day!
We would like to express our gratitude
for all of your support in helping make
this event happen!
