Company description

Food Well Alliance envisions a livable, resilient Metro Atlanta growing, sharing and eating healthy, local food. Our success is driven by collaboration, working with organizations and individuals to create  thriving communities with measurable environmental, economic, community and health impacts.

As an Alliance, we unite communities in Atlanta to build a robust local food system - a network of individuals and organizations that grow, process, distribute, consume and recover fresh local food. Food Well Alliance operates in ways that are equitable, collaborative and transparent to:

  • Identify, invest in and promote innovative ways to strengthen the local food system and how it is valued
  • Connect people, ideas, and capital to strengthen local urban growers and markets, to increase production of sustainably grown, local food and access to local compost  

The creation of Food Well Alliance was made possible through funding from the James M.
