Coming Attractions



Capital Region - Food and Agriculture Initiatives RoundtableCRFAIR, formed in 1997, is a coalition of organizations working to strengthen regional food security and our local food system, from farm gate to dinner plate. CR-FAIR's mission is to increase knowledge of and bring about positive change in the food and agriculture system within the Capital Region.  We are your regional VIHA Food Security Hub.


We work collaboratively to

  • reduce hunger and access to healthy diets
  • increasing the viability of farming
  • increasing the supply, consumption and diversity of locally produced processed food
  • increasing our community’s knowledge and involvement with food and agriculture issues
