The Oklahoma Farm and Food Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the local food industry and accessibility to healthy, locally produced foods in Oklahoma through continuing education, project management, and sound policy development.
Our membership includes local family farmers and ranchers, farmers markets, food production enterprises, food distributors and processors, restaurants and chefs, public health organizations, institutional purchasers, educational institutions, and tribal, local, and state governments.
From the panhandle of Oklahoma to the strawberry fields of the Cherokee Nation, our diverse membership represents every component of the local food industry (production, distribution, processing, wholesale, retail), but the majority of food producers are family farmers and ranchers.
Through strategic partnerships, community engagement, and sound research, the Oklahoma Farm and Food Alliance strives to build an effective, sustainable local food industry in Oklahoma, while providing better quality food produced in Oklahoma to people from all backgrounds and socio-economic situations. Our goal is to assist Oklahomans engaged in each aspect of the local food industry. Working with both new and established members of the local food industry, we offer trainings and continuing education regarding food production, marketing, business development, and financing opportunities. To this end, we are committed to educating the public regarding the benefits and availability of locally produced foods, in addition to, promoting sound public policies at the local, state, federal and tribal levels. Our ultimate goal is the development of a robust local food economy in Oklahoma offering plentiful jobs, community resilience and healthy living.
