Community Food Access

NOFA-VT believes all people, regardless of circumstance, should have access to local, organic food that is nourishing and supports our working landscape.  Our Community Food Security programs support the many farmers and farm businesses that are committed to feeding everyone in their communities.  They serve as a key mechanism for engaging Vermonters seeking the opportunity to participate in a just and sustainable food system.
