Mission and History
We are farmers, parents, students, persons of faith, community gardeners, and health advocates united by 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.
Community Food Advocates is an organization with a rich history and a big mission: to end hunger by creating 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.
