Real Food Gulf Coast is a nonprofit that formed in 2009 to grow and support a local and sustainable food economy along the Mississippi and Alabama Gulf Coast. We seek to increase knowledge about the links between food, agriculture, nutrition, health, and community strength. To that end, we sponsor three all local foods farmers markets along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, host local foods dinners where consumers can meet the farmer, sponsor local farm tours, and provide funds for participating farmers to seek continuing education to improve their farming enterprise. We are also involved in food and farm policy advocacy and are among the founding members of a state-wide food policy council.
