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.
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.
