OFC Home : Oakland Food Connection Since its founding in 2005, Oakland Food Connection has established programs that support school and community gardens, community-based farmers markets, and youth entrepreneurship projects. Our health-focused approach is intended to combat high rates of preventable diseases such as diabetes, asthma, cancer and obesity. Through our work, we improve access to health-promoting resources such as healthy food and green space, while empowering youth to develop as skilled leaders and change agents capable of creating healthy environments for their communities. Through the lens of food justice, Oakland Food Connection emphasizes the perspectives and interests of people of color and their communities when addressing concerns about food access, jobs, policy and education. To help youth draw connections between personal and community health, OFC provides programs that develop the leadership capacities of Oakland youth.
