FamilyFarmed.org's mission is to expand the production, marketing, and distribution of locally grown and responsibly produced food, in order to enhance the social, economic, and environmental health of our communities. In Chicago we partner with institutions including the Chicago Public Schools, Midway and O'Hare Airports, and McCormick Place to source local and responsibly produced food for their foodservice programs. Nationally, we train small and mid-size produce farmers in food safety through our Wholesale Success Trainings. We also produce the Good Food Festival & Conference every March in Chicago, bringing the local Good Food community together to learn, connect, and of course, eat Good Food!
