Holiday greetings from CFFP and Philanthropy Northwest!
We want to bring the local food system into our homes, gatherings, and celebrations this holiday season — both by buying local and also by supporting and volunteering with food-focused nonprofits in our communities.
Eat Local for the Holidays
Farmers Markets boast a cornucopia of great resources for holiday meals, gifts, and decorations. Hosting events from cheeseboard tastings to performing artists, local farmers markets are a great way to enjoy holiday shopping and support local producers.

Local Food Nonprofits for Holiday Volunteering and Giving
Use this holiday as an opportunity to support organizations in the food space that work towards our common goals of a healthy, thriving, local food economy and community. Even better, take the New Year as a chance to become a regular supporter or volunteer to one of these groups in your area.
As part of its own research, CFFP regularly illuminates educative research, media, and resources related to our work. This page contains public versions of our synopses.
