Healthy food is a basic human right. We organize and stand up for food justice and advocate for policy change for greater food equity, food sovereignty, and food security.

NEW! 2023 Eater’s Guide to the Farm Bill
The Farm Bill is a hard-working bill that covers everything from crop insurance to community food projects, from Meals on Wheels and SNAP (food stamps), to energy, conservation, and international food aid.
If you eat food or know anyone who eats food, then this bill directly impacts every part of your meal from where and how your food is grown; how it is cleaned or processed; how much it costs; and any money you may receive to help pay for your food.
Make sure your voice and our collective voices are heard in shaping legislation that impacts you, the environment, and everyone!
Louisville Grocery Store Crisis
We are deeply concerned about Louisville grocery store closings, especially those serving low-wealth neighborhoods and seniors. This has become a crisis for people downtown and in many West Louisville neighborhoods. Community and government support to increase Fresh Stop Markets and to help get the Louisville Community Grocery up and running is part of the solution, but much more needs to be done.
Louisville Landbank Policies
We believe that community access to land is the basis for food sovereignty and justice. The Louisville Landbank owns many vacant lots throughout the city, but there are barriers for residents who are interested in purchasing vacant lots to develop gardens or green spaces. You can learn more about recent changes to Landbank programs and FIN’s proposed policy and programmatic solutions to build greater equity and community benefit by clicking the links below. You can also read FIN’s 2020 letter and 2021 letter to the Landbank, listen to this episode of “Truth to Power” on Forward Radio, and take a look at FIN’s Land Access Guide to learn more FIN’s work on this issue.
