Food Connect is a social enterprise connecting local farmers and eaters in South East Queensland for over 13 years. They are transforming the food system taking a rights-based approach rather than seeing food as a commodity. Using a true-cost model, Food Connect returns a fair price to regenerative farmers using a unique community distribution model, reducing food miles to an average of 140km per week. Staff are engaged in democratic decision making and customers are treated to a weekly supply of healthy, whole foods from fabulous farmers and food makers.

Everyone in the food value chain should be rewarded fairly and treated ethically for their part in producing, processing and delivering the food we enjoy. That food should be sourced as locally as possible, thereby reducing the carbon footprint, revitalising rural and remote communities, and stimulating local economic development. Food Connect's model has been replicated in a number of locations in Australia and its relentless advocacy has helped to grow the 'Fair Food Movement' across the nation.
