Dayle Ohlau spoke to valley resident and Community Builder Cynthia Luck Carr recently about efforts to bring a local mobile poultry processing unit (MPPU) to the Wood River Valley – – the first in Idaho. Cynthia is also a Holistic Health Counselor, Life Coach, and Professional Educator. The Q&A with Cynthia is posted below.  You can also learn more by visiting the Local Food Alliance Website at http://www.localfoodalliance.org/mobile-poultry-processing-unit/

Why an MPPU?

So, the MPPU will help the local consumer and the local farmer?

How close is our valley to securing a MPPU?

Are local restaurants interested this project?

Where will we be able to buy the locally processed chicken?

How big is a local processing unit?

How is the MPPU being funded?

How can folks get involved who would like to help with the project?
