The Atlanta Local Food Initiative (ALFI) is a network that joins individuals, corporations, nonprofits, universities, and governmental agencies to build a local food system that enhances human health, promotes environmental renewal, fosters local economies, and links rural and urban communities.
ALFI works to create a more sustainable food system for the Atlanta Metropolitan area through:
Networking: making regular connections among diverse stakeholders;
Planning: the creation of A Plan for Atlanta’s Sustainable Food Future;
Policy development: working collaboratively with public officials to create supply, increase consumption and improve access to healthy, local and sustainably produced foods.
Since its founding in 2005, ALFI’s accomplishments include:
- Coalition Building - Formed a robust and active steering committee comprised of representatives from 40 agencies and organizations committed to local and sustainable food.
- Strategic Planning - Created A Plan for Atlanta’s Sustainable Food Future, the city’s first visioning plan that addresses local and sustainable food systems. The plan has been endorsed by 90+ community organizations and representatives.
- Food Assessment - Worked with DeKalb County Board of Health to carry out an assessment of availability and cost of healthy, fresh fruits and vegetables in two neighborhoods.
- Food Security - Partnered with The Georgia Citizens Coalition on Hunger to support their on-site garden development, rainwater capture and food access through their existing farmers’ market program.
