Florida Local Food Project

The Florida Local Food Project is designed to create and build connections among local food actors to establish stronger relationships to increase local foods in our communities. This USDA grant-funded project will take place over the next three years and includes six objectives that will aim to increase the availability, consumption, and sale of local foods throughout Florida.

By identifying key areas and local food system actors who have the potential to expand, connect, and build stronger relationships in our food system, FOG and its collaborator Florida Farmer’s Market Association (FFMA) will work together with an advisory committee to facilitate the establishment of a Local Food Network to address specific needs and enable meaningful connections between farmers, restaurants, local food entrepreneurs, and other key food actors.
