NOFFN works to build the local food economy in greater New Orleans.

A new food economy with shorter supply chains — from local farms to packing and production facilities to retailers — a shorter distance from farm to fork.

We have a wealth of assets — climate, soil, farmers, new farmers — and Farm-to-Table seems to have legs beyond a foodie fad. What’s missing is the middle infrastructure that can get farm produce to the table. This will satisfy the growing consumer demand, increase farmer income, and create new food manufacturing jobs. NOFFN is working on it.
