Sustainable Food Center

Many small farms suffered because of industrialization and commercialization. Big companies sell cheaper food, pushing small farms on the fringes, and this is an unfortunate turn of events that many organizations want to address. Among them is Sustainable Food Center, a nonprofit organization serving Austin and the Central Texas region. They want to help local, small and mid-sized farms thrive. They provide farmer support services like farm visits, business and marketing training, one-on-one consultation, and grant writing assistance. Sustainable Food Center also focuses on making sure the people have increased access to healthy, local food. They offer education and resources to help individuals and families maintain a healthy diet. They also seek to positively impact the local food supply chain through SFC's farmers' markets. This way, buyers are connected to the best local farmers, ranchers, food producers, and artisans.
