Review for COMMUNITY FOOD CONNECTIONS INC, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Community Food Connections seeks to improve the nutrition and health of all Phoenix, AZ residents and make fresh foods available to those who typically have limited access. They source all their food locally, providing a market for small growers and have enabled over 100 small businesses to flourish with very minor startup costs. Additionally they are active in the Farm to School program for AZ as well as in low income communities around the Phoenix area where they educate people on how to grow food in a sustainable way in a dryland environment

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the festive environment and the feeling of local community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

diverse, exceptional and always having a good time.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

spread it's mission around the city more effectively and build community around healthy eating and support of the local economy.

Ways to make it better...

....it doesn't get any better!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of unrestricted funding to make sure that key staff are adequately paid and to hire a few more helpers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Cindy Gentry rocks!

Role:  General Member of the Public & benefited from the great produce. I've also sold excess produce at the Community Exchange Table.
