Louisville Farm to Table's mission is to increase the capacity of the local food system by working to increase production, marketing, distribution and sales of Kentucky edible agriculture products and to meet the demand of Louisville's market for local foods.
The effort includes brokering deals and relationships, creating public forums to identify and overcome barriers to progress, and working with institutions such as Jefferson County Public Schools. The goal is to make the flow of Kentucky-grown products into the city more seamless, giving easier access to the folks who are interested in procuring local products.
