Please consider a donation to NOFFN to support our work in building a local food economy.

As we come to the close of 2014, NOFFN has pivoted to begin its Food & Farm initiative - a commercial shared use kitchen to help food entrepreneurs start building their food manufacturing businesses. We will be helping these businesses source their ingredients from local farmers.

We are committed to helping food entrepreneurs in underserved communities and offer partial subsidies to cover the initial start-up costs of food production. It costs about $2,000 for each food entrepreneur to get the permits, certifications, product liability insurance, and for the initial 20 hours of kitchen time to begin producing their products.

We are trying to raise $10,000 from tax-free donations to NOFFN before the end of the year to help defray half of these start-up costs for 10 food entrepreneurs from underserved communities. With $10,000, we can help 10 food entrepreneurs get their licenses, certifications, and kitchen time by paying for half of that start-up cost.

Then they can begin building their businesses to achieve our goal of New Orleanians eating great food grown and produced by by New Orleanians.

Any donation will be graciously accepted. Please join the movement of building a local food economy, supporting the growth of local food businesses, and supporting the livelihood of local farmers. Please consider making a gift to NOFFN - http://bit.ly/1rPeOCU - to support our vital work. Thank you.

No rainstorm could stop several hundred people from gathering at the Horse Farm to honor Griff Blakewood Sunday afternoon.

something to ponder ---- Think about the future. Where will your food come from? Probably someplace local since the economic/environmental/social cost of food produced a long distance from you will be too high. Who will produce this food? Farmers. Where will these farmers come from? NOFFN is working on it.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Donations to the the New Orleans Food & Farm Network on May 6th between Midnight and 11:59 pm will be stretched with “lagniappe” dollars from the Greater New Orleans Foundation and its partners. Please support us so we can build a just future food system.

FarmCity is NOFFN's new initiative to increase the number of land-based projects on vacant lots in New Orleans -- through assistance in acquiring the land, incubation of the projects, offering resources and technical assistance, market development, and training.
