Community Food Funders

Community Food Funders (CFF) supports the growth of an equitable, ecologically sound, and sustainable food system in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. CFF provides information, resources and networking opportunities for funders to invest strategically in growing, processing, and distributing food locally. CFF is not a grant-making entity, it is a network of philanthropic organizations and individual funders who are active in food system work.

CFF is coordinated by staff at North Star Fund and is led by a steering committee comprised of grantmakers from member foundations. CFF facilitates roundtable discussions, funder briefings, site visits, and social gatherings to foster information-sharing and networking among funders.

CFF also aggregates and shares information and resources to its members and complements the work of other regional and national groups of similar intent. CFF distributes a monthly e-newsletter highlighting food systems news, upcoming events, key studies, and other information of interest to funders.
