Food and Farm Council of Riley County and City of Manhattan


The Food and Farm Council of Riley County and City of Manhattan is self-funded and needs additional community support. While we were appointed by the City and County, we depend on outside sources of funding.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas Pathways to a Healthy Kansas grants and other local, state and national grants have provided us with revenues to this point. Some local individuals, organizations, and businesses have also supported us. Our goal is to raise additional funds to hire a paid coordinator to oversee our volunteers, programs and grants.

You can help!

We have an expendable funds account and now an endowed fund with Greater Manhattan Community Foundation! That means besides accepting donors year-round we can have 50% of our donations matched if given on Grow Green Match Day, a special giving event held each year in April.


“The work of the Food and Farm Council is vitally important to meeting the needs of the citizens of Riley county.  Their coordination ensures that local food system needs are addressed.  We are a better community when you have a dedicated group of volunteers that truly want to make a difference."

Amy Button Renz, Retired CEO of the K-State Alumni Association, and Food Insecurity Community Action Team partner
