Local Food System


The Borough of State College is committed to the health and vitality of our community. An important part of a healthy community is a strong and sustainable network of food systems. The Borough is a burgeoning town uniquely situated near farms that produce high-quality agricultural products. As part of the Borough’s mission to foster sustainable growth and development in and around State College, we are proud to support local farmers and encourage residents to buy local whenever possible.
