Though the website has been up and running since last fall, Morris says the offline database is far more comprehensive than what's currently accessible online. But with only three people inputting the data, getting the website up to par with all the research is a slow process.

For now, the information is only viewable online. Lucky for the technology-challenged, Morris intends to make the information available in print form in the future. For the targeted audience, however -- think "a chef or mom on the go" -- Morris says an online product just made more sense.

The next step in the development of the project will be more research in the northern part of the state, though Morris says she currently is looking for funding sources to continue the work once her fellowship ends.

In the meantime, the Good Food Allies welcome suggestions and critiques as they work to finalize the product. Anyone willing to beta-test the finder can e-mail for information on how to get involved.

"We have a lot of artistry going on," Morris says. "A lot of people doing great things with food."
