Sustainable Table and Open Food Network are working in partnership to improve our food system. Your tax-deductible donation will be directed to Open Food Network, via the Open Food Foundation, to support farmers, farmers’ markets, food hubs and co-ops to sell online and provide safe, ethical and fair food supply chains for eaters all over Australia.
Donation to Open Food Network
Open Food Network (OFN) is a social enterprise online marketplace that makes it easy to shop online and buy locally grown food, direct from farmers. Buying this way enables shoppers to build connections with the people who grow our food, whilst learning about how and why they grow what they do. It also provides certainty around where our shopping dollar is going and who it supports.
Another feature of OFN enables farmers to sell collectively through food hubs, cooperatives and by moving farmers’ markets online. This increases the range on offer for the shopper, increases sales opportunities for producers and enables shared logistics and a focus on locality, which supports regional economies and a fair and sustainable food system.
During COVID-19, OFN has supported hundreds of farmers, farmers’ markets and food enterprises to start selling online and distribute food safely. Because they are 100% open source and for-purpose, everything is reinvested in supporting farmers to build fair supply networks.
Your donation will enable OFN to continue their important work during a time of increased demand for contactless purchasing options and during a time where there is growing awareness and focus on supporting safe, ethical and fair food supply chains.
