A California-based nonprofit that advocates for family farmers and sustainable agriculture. We run extensive, on-the-ground programs in many regions throughout California, enabling community members and businesses to find and choose local food, and helping farmers increase their income and sustainability. CAFF has been recognized nationally and internationally for its pioneering programs, and played key roles in enacting the nationís toughest laws regulating pesticide use; promoting the development of organic farming; bringing fresh, local produce into school cafeterias; and establishing programs to distribute locally grown produce to community grocery stores, hospitals, restaurants and farmers markets.
