Community Food Initiatives 2020 Summer Associate
Community Food Initiatives (CFI) is a 27 year-old organization serving families and individuals in Appalachia Ohio. The mission of CFI is to foster communities where everyone has equal access to healthy, local food. CFI’s vision is a resilient region in which everyone in our community has access to an equitable, inclusive, and thriving local food system. CFI is the only organization in the area routinely donating local produce to food pantries, managing low-cost community garden plots, supporting school gardens and teaching youth to grow food, and offering gardening and cooking workshops. SEO FOODLINK is an online map resource with over 500 food access points directing low-income individuals of where to find resources. All of these programs come together to build a stronger community where citizens are empowered to grow and cook their own healthy, whole foods, despite the barriers of poverty. CFI is building capacity to reach more communities across the region by increasing collaborative efforts to fight food insecurity.
