In a nutshell: Community Food Initiatives works to build community resilience through supporting a food system in which everyone in Appalachia Ohio has access to healthy, local food. 

Thanks to community-wide involvement and support, we've been growing and sharing the harvest since 1992.

Double Your Gift with The Giving Tree this season!

Little Fish brewed The Giving Tree once again this year, a beer they brew specifically to benefit CFI.  $1 from every pint sold goes to CFI, so head over to Little Fish and celebrate the season with a round of The Giving Tree, and you'll be giving twice! 

Here's what LF says about the beer:

"The Giving Tree is brewed once a year, as a way for us to give back to our community, through Community Food Initiatives, a non-profit with the mission of providing healthy foods to Appalachians, through food donations and education.  The Giving Tree is a saison brewed with 100% Ohio-grown ingredients, including maple syrup from Pete Hoyer (Colde Creek Farm), hand-picked spruce tips, barley & oat malts from Haus Malts, and a smattering of hops from small farms around Ohio."
