Since its founding 20 years ago, CISA has led a cultural shift toward all things local, including through
its successful “Local Hero” program, the longest-running of its kind in the country. “We are literally and
figuratively rooted in the Valley and no one, nowhere, can beat the food and farm products our farmers
grow on some of the best soil in the world,” CISA says. “We are lucky enough that in the Valley, people
not only know what tastes good, but also people care about their local farmers and understand that they
can change the world with every bite.” What’s next for CISA? Doubling the percentage of local food in
our diets over the next 20 years, to 25 percent.
