About The CCLFC
The Clark County Local Foods Council (CCLFC) is a non-profit organization. It consists of a group of key stakeholders who have come together to address local food education, access, availability, consumption and production in Clark County, Ohio.
Local foods are an asset to our community and it is our hope to elevate local producers, growers, entrepreneurs, as well as educational opportunities to learn more about food as an integral piece of our community quilt.
We know that food has an impact on our community in a number of ways and has an important role in health, family, relationships, social fabric, and economics.
In 2022, the Clark County Local Foods Council became a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
