About Our Office

Office of Food Initiatives

Since its establishment in July 2010 by then-Mayor Thomas M. Menino, the Office of Food Initiatives has encouraged, developed, and promoted the City of Boston as one of the nation’s leading innovative food systems.

The Office has become the starting point for establishing food enterprise in Boston, and is the home of food access programming such as the Boston Bounty Bucks, FreshFoodBoston, Parent University’s culinary classes, and Boston’s Farmers Markets. Over the course of the last three years OFI has also piloted, launched, and developed robust programming around two new industries: Mobile Food Trucks and Urban Agriculture.
