Community Food Advocates is a new organization with a rich history and a big mission: to end hunger and create a healthy, just, and sustainable food system. We were formed in December 2009 through the merger of Manna, a 35-year old organization dedicated to addressing the root causes of hunger and poverty, and Food Security Partners of Middle Tennessee, established in 2007 with a mission of ensuring that everyone has access to healthy, affordable food from a just and sustainable food system.
We are a movement of farmers, parents, students, persons of faith, community gardeners, and health advocates united by a commitment to the idea that all members of our community should have access to food grown in a way that promotes the health of people, planet, and community.
Food ties us together as individuals and communities, which gave inspiration to our new motto: "Everybody Eats." We hope you will join us as we celebrate the role of food and in our shared commitment to healthy, just, and sustainable food for alll.
