Transforming the Food System.
Allegheny Mountain Institute believes in the power of food to build vibrant, healthy communities. We’re training food system advocates and amplifying the impact of partner organizations throughout the Allegheny Highlands and Shenandoah Valley, as we work toward a food system that is socially, environmentally, and economically just.
Allegheny Mountain Institute (AMI) is an educational nonprofit organization with the mission to cultivate healthy communities through food and education.
AMI envisions a thriving network of collaborative, vibrant communities who value the connection between food and health.
Our Work in Action
By growing food and supporting partner organizations, we are working in unison to build resilient communities and food systems.
In 2022, we hosted 7 Fellows in the Farm & Food Study. An additional 6 Fellows completed a Community Action Year, supported 3 community partners to reach their goals related to agriculture, food, health, and education.
