Food storage needs assessment research report for the Seasoned Spoon
Since the Seasoned Spoon started in February of 2003, it has had a major food storage challenge. It has had very limited and inadequate space to store and preserve food. This lack of storage and preservation methods has impeded the Seasoned Spoon from providing as much locally grown, organic and affordable food as possible - as outlined in the Seasoned Spoon mandate. In locating areas for the Seasoned Spoon to store its food and in understanding and undertaking other food preservation methods, the Seasoned Spoon will further be able to contribute to the underlying goals of a sustainable food system., Section 1: Introduction. Purpose. Importance of food storage and preservation. Current food storage/preservation situation at Seasoned Spoon. About food storage and preservation. Key research goals.
