A foodshed is a geographic location that produces food for a particular population — including the land where it’s grown, the markets and kitchens it passes through and the tables it ends up on. Like the flow of water defined by a watershed, a foodshed outlines the flow of food from production to consumption.

It was also the inspiration for Foodshed Pizza & Pasta, which has opened near the Napa airport serving Roman-style pizza by the slice, hot sandwiches, fresh pasta and salads.

Besides its menu emphasizing freshly made dishes from scratch, Foodshed Pizza & Pasta differs from most other restaurants in its work to establish an internship program that offers job training to underserved community members.

After Francis Ford Coppola’s Mammarella’s closed last May in the industrial park near the Napa Airport (just next door to FFC’s headquarters, by the way), it seemed like the end of casual Italian food for that little neck of the woods .

Yet by June, the pizzas should be back in the oven, and pasta water rolling back to a boil. Gio Guerrera (formerly of Uva Trattoria in Napa) is opening Foodshed Pizza & Pasta, and as the name indicates, much of the menu will focus on pizzas (whole, by-the-slice, and take-and-bake) and homemade pastas, alongside salads and homemade bakery items.
