About Us

The CFSA at a glance:

We are a state-wide network of dedicated stakeholders committed to creating broad system change and advancing a sustainable and just food system in Connecticut.

The CFSA is committed to changing the food system to benefit the triple bottom line:

1.  Equity – everyone has access to safe, nutritious, culturally appropriate, and affordable food

2.  Environment – stewardship of soil, water, air and energy resources is institutionalized as an integral part of the food system

3.  Economy – the food supply chain supports many vibrant and varied small businesses that provide sustainable livelihoods

We develop our network by:

  • Providing support to eight sub-networks:
    • Farm to School
    • Food Waste
    • Hunger
    • Incentive Programs
    • Mobile Markets
    • New Farmers
    • School Garden Resource Center
    • Youth and Food Justice
  • Organizing 2-3 networking gatherings per year
  • The Connecticut Food System Leaders Listserv
