About CFI

We are located in the Appalachian Center for Economic Networks (ACEnet) at 94 Columbus Rd in Athens, Ohio. Our offices are in the first hallway of Building C, of which is located closest to the road. Enter through the door at the top of the small staircase leading into the building. Once inside, enter the door to your right. Look for “Community Food Initiatives” on the internal doors.

Our business hours vary because our staff spends a lot of time involved in activities outside of the office and in the community. If you need to meet with us, please contact us ahead of time.
