SBCFAN Members are active participants in the Santa Barbara County food system. They eat, grow, gather, buy, sell, ship, process, raise, fish, and engage with food as it moves from farm to table. The Network provides members with an online “hub” to further connect, align, and activate with other food system “actors” so that together, we can build a more resilient food system.
