Many congratulations to Serenity Hill & Kirsten Larsen and the team for their work to bring about real food alternatives for us all. Simran Sethi gave a brilliant introduction for launch of The Open Food Network.

The Open Food Network is a community of people working together to build a free and open source platform that provides an open marketplace and supply network for local food, so that:

Eaters can “know their farmers” (where they are, how they farm, exactly what price they get) while still having wide choice and the ease and convenience of local pick-up and access.

Farmers can set their own prices, tell their own stories and choose who they trade with.

Ethical and diverse food enterprises rebuild local economies by supporting these farmers and eaters to distribute food.
