History of Community Farm Connection

Community Farm Connection (CFC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to supporting small farmers and improving consumer access to locally grown food.  CFC supports sustainable agriculture, small diversified farms and local communities by bringing farmers new opportunities to get their bounty to the consumer.

Working directly with farmers from around North Central Washington, CFC- creates cooperative new ways to bring fresh vegetables, fruit, eggs, meat, cheese and other locally produced food right into Wenatchee where consumers can find it more conveniently. 

Hosting an AmeriCorps*VISTA is Community Farm Connection’s first experience in hunger relief. The new gleaning project, Community Harvest, has been working on capacity building and community awareness of hunger issues in the local communities. One of the main hurdles Community Harvest has been working to overcome is the lack of communication and collaboration between existing hunger relief entities. In order to effectively get food from farms and backyards to those who need it is imperative that the hunger relief system be efficient in Chelan and Douglas counties.
