2020 Goal: Double the percent of fruits and vegetables sourced and consumed within our region.

Our Mission

The Local Food team brings together local farmers, distributors, farmers markets, cooperatives, community gardeners, community supported agriculture organizations, health professionals, restaurants, extension services, educational organizations, government entities and processors to develop strategies to increase the demand for local foods, increase production and identify new markets for local foods. 

You can participate by taking the 10% Shift to Local Food and pledging to shift 10% of your food budget to purchase local foods. Learn more here! You can also join in the work by joining Green Umbrella and attending Local Food Action Team meetings--typically held the first Thursday of the month at the Civic Garden Center located at 2715 Reading Road, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Contact the chairperson for more information.
