Open Food Network Connect

Helping farmers and community food enterprises to buy and sell produce on the Open Food Network


Open Food Network is excited to offer a new brokering service – essentially it’s match making for produce!

Due to COVID-19, our food system has faced some serious challenges. We have been contacted by farmers with ‘stranded’ produce, while buyers have experienced empty shelves. We want to help connect supply and demand to ensure food gets where it needs to go. 

For farmers

Are you a farmer on the Open Food Network with extra fruit, vegetables, dairy, meat or grain you weren’t expecting? Has a sale fallen through and left you with kilograms of food? Click below on the ‘I HAVE PRODUCE’ button, provide us with some more information and we’ll help you find a buyer.

 For food hubs and community food enterprises

Are you looking to procure directly from farmers to support our local food system? Are you looking for certain produce on the Open Food Network platform and can’t quite find it? Click below on the              ‘I WANT PRODUCE’ button, provide us with some more information and we’ll help you find what you’re after.

If you want more information about Open Food Network Connect, please email Prudence Rothwell.


This project is generously funded by Moving Feasta collaboration of Victorian organisations working to create a pandemic food response that is just, sustainable and resilient.
