Part of the Wallace Center, the National Good Food Network (NGFN) seeks to connect local food suppliers to buyers and distributors, creating new supply chains which “rewards sustainable production, treats growers and workers fairly, improves the health of families and the wealth of communities, and meets the growing demand for healthy, green, fair, affordable food.”
Slow Food is an international nonprofit, a grassroots movement that “links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.” Comprised of local chapters, Slow Food uses programming to raise public awareness of food that is locally and sustainable grown; protection of biodiversity; promoting heirloom produce, animal breeds, wild food and cooking practices that are endangered; and promoting the celebration of the interplay between community and food.
