The Good Food Collective | Creating Systems-Level Strategy

Client Needs

The Good Food Collective (GFC) strengthens the Southwest Colorado regional food system by addressing food security, food justice and equity, and food economy. Through interactions with the LatinX community they serve, they learned that lack of child care and educational opportunities act as a barrier to food security, preventing many from working. Because of this insight, GFC sought to comprehensively understand the LatinX community’s early care and education (ECE) needs.

Our Solution

TCG helped the organization convene an ECE task force made of LatinX and ECE key partners, who worked to identify goals and strategies to strengthen early care and education in La Plata County. We also gathered quantitative data from public sources and qualitative data from a variety of key partners, providing an ECE community needs assessment report and strategic plan that will inform future initiatives.


  • Supported a task force with 10 members
  • Conducted 15 interviews, convened 10 focus groups, and surveyed 50 individuals to gather feedback to inform future plans and strategies
  • Provided 36 instances of interpretation and translation
  • Developed one community needs assessment and strategic plan in both Spanish and English to support food security
