Fairfax Food Council (FFC) was established by the Partnership for a Healthier Fairfax in 2015 with a vision of a vibrant food system where healthy, accessible and affordable food is valued as a basic human right. Its mission is to facilitate community partnerships and efforts to promote healthy eating.
Food Access & Literacy Working Group
The Food Access & Literacy Working Group works collaboratively to develop innovative initiatives to increase the number of healthy food access points in the Fairfax community in the areas of highest need. The working group also facilitates collaborative initiatives to develop food literacy and nutrition education programming that is available and delivered through a variety of avenues.
Urban Agriculture Working Group
The Urban Agriculture Working Group focuses on expanding gardens at schools, places of worship and other community settings and increasing access to fresh produce through pantry donations from gardens.
