Riley County and City of Manhattan Food and Farm Council

The Council receives no city or county funding support. Funds are needed for general operating expenses, including staff time. The Council serves as the local food system hub of partners coordinating initiatives to decrease food insecurity, decrease food waste, increase access to local, healthy foods, and provide food skills and food safety education. Checks can be sent to:

Riley County Health Department
2030 Tecumseh Road
Manhattan, KS 66502.

Put “FFC/Operating Expenses” on the memo line.

For annual giving, contact Vickie James, FFC Coordinator.
