Community Food Initiatives

Community Food Initiatives (CFI) is a membership based grassroots organization in Appalachian Ohio. The mission of CFI is to support a local food movement that expands fair access to fresh and nutritious foods for all people in our region. Our dedication is centered in helping people grow their own food in the greater Athens County area, as well as helping to promote self-sufficiency as it relates to basic food production, preservation, and preparation. This work is rooted in community and the development of a strong local food system. Our initiatives assist individuals and families to grow food, develop cooking skills, and reduce their health risks by eating whole foods. Our work is supported by regional farmers and food producers, partnering non-profits, local government and foundations.
