"Food is our most intimate and powerful connection to each other, our cultures and to the earth. To transform our food system is to heal our bodies, transform our economy & protect our environment.” HEAL Food Alliance
Greenwich Food Alliance (GFA) is an alliance of educators, businesses, agencies, community members, nonprofit organizations, and municipal leaders. We are convened by The Foodshed Network (TFN) and the Greenwich Sustainability-Food System Sector (GSC-FSS) is a convening partner. The alliance meets six times a year for roundtable discussions, all meetings are made public on the Town of Greenwich website, along with the minutes.
GFA works together to advance Greenwich's food system initiatives through leveraging inspiration, knowledge, and networks. Our connectivity helps us to identify issues, strategize solutions, overcome barriers and support each other. The alliance represents, and gives voice to, a Greenwich food community with a shared vision of an equitable, accessible and resilient local food system.
