Open Food Network - OFN LOCAL
A global movement with humble beginnings.

Founded in Australia, the Open Food Network started as a little experiment with a van, some farmers and some friends. Since then it has grown to become an open source platform collaboratively nurtured by like-minded people around the world.

The Open Food Network is the flagship project of the Open Food Foundation is a non-profit, registered charity established in October 2012 to develop, accumulate and protect open source knowledge, code, applications and platforms for fair and sustainable food systems.

While established in Australia, we support global collaboration on open projects for food system transformation. We want to build and support communities that bring the people who need the software together with those who can develop it.

Governance arrangements for the Open Food Network are currently under review with our growing international community, and the Foundation’s role may evolve in this process. To find out more about this process or get involved you can read more in our Community forums.
