Food, Faith and Farming Network Churches' Center for Land and People is proud to announce our recent name and logo change. The new name, Food, Faith and Farming Network Inc. tells the story of the connections we make. The new name makes it easier for us to reach out to all faiths as we continue to build connections between land and people. We remain committed to our mission and are looking forward to new initiatives that build on our roots.

We are in the process of developing our new website and will let you know as soon as it is up and running. In the meantime you will begin to see materials on this website that incorporate our new name and logo.

We are in the planning stages for our Winter Farmers' Markets and Meals for the 2016-2017 season. We uploaded the current Milwaukee schedule and are in the process of finalizing the Madison schedule. It will be posted as soon as it is available. Hope you can join us for a market or two. Click on the Markets and Meals for Hope logo at the bottom of this page for the upcoming season schedules.

Supporting the spiritual integrity of rural life and farming

The Churches’ Center for Land and People is an ecumenical organization that brings together churches, groups and individuals to strengthen rural life and the ministries of faith communities in Wisconsin with roots in Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois. The Center works to integrate earth stewardship, economic justice, community and spirituality around issues related to agriculture and food.

A major emphasis since 2004 has been linking farmers to consumers through Winter Farmers' Markets & Meals for Hope held in local faith communities in a multi-state area during the winter months. These markets and meals have provided farmers with increased production, sales and marketing opportunities in the winter season while educating consumers about the importance of buying locally-raised, sustainably-produced food. A percentage of the proceeds are donated to the Harvest of Hope Fund an initiative that offers financial help and hope to farm families in financial distress.
