How A New Group Is Trying To Strengthen Idaho's Food System — Despite COVID


COVID-19 has upended many sectors of the economy in Idaho, including the food industry. But before the pandemic there wasn’t a trade association that represented all aspects of this sector — from farmers and ranchers, to food and beverage producers — to independent restaurants and bars.
