With deep roots in Middle Tennessee, Community Food Advocates (CFA), previously Manna and Food Security Partners, is a leader in food security and sustainability solutions for our citizens. For more than 38 years, we have been committed to assisting with temporary food assistance, through our programs such as SNAP Outreach, as well as supported long-term solutions to hunger, through programs like SNAP Fresh, Growing Healthy Kids, and Seed Money Suppers.
Our programs all work to advance our community’s well-being and our mission; to end hunger by creating a healthy, just, and sustainable food system, because we understand that ending hunger takes more than just a meal, it takes changing the food system.
SNAP Fresh is a campaign designed to increase the redemption of SNAP benefits at Nashville’s farmers’ markets. The goal of SNAP Fresh is to promote community health and the local economy by increasing the use of SNAP benefits at farmers’ markets.
