THE FOODROUTES NETWORK
FoodRoutes Network (FRN) is a national nonprofit organization that provides communications tools, technical support, networking, and information resources to organizations nationwide (such as CAFF) that are working to rebuild local, community-based food systems. FRN is dedicated to reintroducing Americans to their food – the seeds it grows from, the farmers who produce it, and the routes that carry it from the fields to their tables.
FRN works in partnership with community-based organizations across the country to help these groups increase their capacity to design, launch, and implement successful “buy local” food and market education initiatives. Specifically, this assistance is targeted toward strengthening partner organizations’ ability to plan effective campaigns by drawing on innovative message research ansd communications tools. Another objective of FRN is to communicate with the general public about the “multiple benefits” beyond food production which sustainable agriculture contributes to communities and the environment.
