HOONAH Community Food Assessment
Imagine a local food system in 20 years that is resilient to climate change, increased tourism pressure, and transport vulnerabilities. What does this food system look like in Hoonah? How do we get there? What information do we need to get started? Your answers will help us to plan!

This is a community survey for selected year-round residents who are active harvesters, fishers, and hunters.

All responses and information will be kept confidential. Only HIA and SAWC staff will have access to people's identity.
