Who We Are

Our Story

 

 

Good food changes everything.

We launched Fair Food Network in 2009 with an entrepreneurial spirit and an unwavering commitment to our mission: to grow community health and wealth through food.

A decade in, our work is connecting people to the power of food to improve health, ignite local economies, and open opportunities for all–especially in our most underserved communities. Together with our partners, we are pioneering and proving innovations that can be owned locally and scaled nationally, growing a future where everyone can harness the full potential of food to transform their communities for good.
