TFN is: a hub of the Tallahassee area food movement
Who: a group of community activists, organizers, gardeners, graphic artists, youth workers, farmer-producers, university students and professionals, health workers, sustainability advocates, grocers, farmers’ market and neighborhood leaders -- dedicated to developing resilient, community-based food systems that will provide healthy, affordable food for all.
Mission: to Grow Community-based Food Systems.
Vision: an educated world that has access to food that is healthy, green, fair and affordable
Work: TFN identifies, engages, and aids potential public and private organizations and individuals who are working to create a community-based food system that will ensure healthy, green, fair, and affordable food to all. We operate in line with principles of Community Based Asset Development by linking and coordinating efforts of local farmers; farmers' market leaders; school, community, and home gardeners; food garden educators; food pantry volunteers; local healthy food retailers; area sustainability advocates; and school nutrition initiatives. We work to engage our local, regional, and international communities in the food movement.
Intention: TFN very intentionally strives to transcend social divisions: team building across lines of race, income, neighborhood, age, and gender.
