The Kansas City Food Circle promotes a sustainable regional food system by connecting Eaters and local, organic, and free-range Farmers.
The Kansas City Food Circle is a 100% 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 Eaters and Farmers in the greater Kansas City area on both sides of the Missouri/Kansas state line by providing an alternative to the industrialized agricultural system, which is dependent on practices that are detrimental for our personal health and for the health of the living world of which we are part.
We work with Eaters, Farmers, Chefs, and retailers to promote the health, environmental, and economic benefits of eating locally-grown organic and free-range foods.
Our purpose is to provide support for rural, urban, and suburban Farmers in our region who strive to grow delicious, nourishing food, using 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.
How You Can Get Involved
We could not do what we do without the support of these local companies. Whether through donations of money, talent, or in-kind items for raffles, we value our partnerships with these great folks!
