Local Foods Connection (LFC) is an Iowa City, Iowa-based non-profit connecting local, sustainable farmers devoted to low-impact and renewable farming methods with the increasing numbers of Iowa residents who live below the poverty line. LFC's work is rooted in the belief that food is a basic human right - that all people deserve access to nutritious and sustaining food and that farmers who grow food in harmony with the land deserve our support.
Since 1999, we have purchased community supported agriculture shares from local farmers, distributing food along with food education free of charge to low-to-moderate income Iowa families. Thanks to volunteer labor of approximately 150 individuals, LFC devotes more than 75 percent of our budget directly to client services.
LFC makes a difference by reminding the community that farmers have a right to a sustainable living and that everyone has a right to nutritious food.
