The Kansas City Food Circle’s mission is to connect eaters with local organic and free-range food producers in order to promote a sustainable food system in the Kansas City region.
Well into our second decade of service, the Kansas City Food Circle is a volunteer-driven, membership and donation-financed organization, created to promote the development of a permanently sustainable local food system. It is a long-term project of the Heart of America Action Linkage, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in Missouri. We serve the greater Kansas City area (eaters and growers in Missouri, Kansas, and nearby communities in Nebraska and Iowa) providing an alternative to the conventional agricultural system, which is dependent on practices that are neither good for our personal health nor for the health of the living world of which we are part.
The Kansas City Food Circle is building a community food system in which farmers, eaters, chefs, and grocers know and trust each other. Our network enables us to share our knowledge and experience while we work together promoting the benefits of locally-grown organic and free-range foods. Our primary purpose remains to support farmers in our region who strive to produce delicious, nourishing food, use environmentally-sound, organic methods that restore and preserve the health of the land and who treat their animals far more humanely than industrial animal factories.
