Missouri Food Finder

Written by TF Staff on .

A new online tool, the Missouri Food Finder, is connecting consumers with people growing and selling locally produced food in their region.

Developed by University of Missouri Extension in collaboration with the Mis­souri Department of Agriculture, the site helps address the economic impact of COVID-19 on producers and consumers.

“This easy-to-use resource will help farmers and small businesses continue to thrive, while also helping families find nutritious local and regional food options,” said Marshall Stewart, MU vice chancellor for extension and en­gagement.

Farmers, growers and local suppliers can enter basic information about the food they sell, their hours, location and contact information. That information will automatically show up on a Missouri map. Consumers simply type in their lo­cation to see what options are available in the area they select.
