The Ghana Food Movement (GFM) is an NGO in Accra that aims to combat food insecurity and poverty with sustainable farming and culinary education. This energetic group, including farmers, chefs, scientists, nutritionists, and entrepreneurs, is transforming Ghana's food system, promoting sustainability, and culinary innovation.

This year GFM is aiming for even greater impact by executing their dream project. They are launching THE KITCHEN, an all-round food education hub, equipping young Ghanaians with skills, knowledge, and a network to become the next generation of changemakers. We aim to educate 1000 young Ghanaians per year. THE KITCHEN will be the heartbeat for Ghana’s food community.

Why It Matters

We believe this is the missing link to solving Ghana’s major challenges, all under one roof. Farming - processing - food culture - health - economy - ecosystems - employment, they are all connected. It is a system. And most impactful changes are accomplished through a systematic approach. So that needs to be educated and facilitated. 

Community Impact

We strive for a Ghana where everyone is part of a sustainable, nutritious food system. Our educational efforts aim to transform lives and communities, boosting rural and urban economies through sustainable farming and culinary innovation.
