Island Food Community of Pohnpei

Summary

The Island Food Community of Pohnpei is a non-profit chartered nongovernmental organization (NGO) in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia. It first met on October 16, 2003, World Food Day, and was chartered in January 2004 with its elected officers and adopted by-laws.

Vision: To live in a productive environmentally sound island where a diversity of locally grown island food is produced and consumed, providing food security, sustainable development, economic benefits, self-reliance, improved health, cultural preservation, and human dignity, and at the same time protecting the natural resources.

Mission: To promote the production, consumption, local marketing, and if feasible export of locally grown island foods in order to regain the dignity of relying on home food production, attain a greater degree of food security for the state, rescue cultural values, and improved health of the people. Pohnpeian community participation and empowerment is the cornerstone of our work.
