Bridging the Gap from Our Farm to Your Table

Republic Food Enterprise Center (RFEC), located in Republic, PA, serves as a comprehensive center for the development of sustainable food products across Western Pennsylvania. We work to bridge the gap from farm to table.
We respond to the nutritional needs of Western Pennsylvanians by stimulating agricultural production, producing value-added products, distributing local produce, and developing retail outlets within food deserts throughout the region.
RFEC is a social enterprise of Fayette County Community Action Agency and supported by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA).

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program gives you access to fresh, local produce. This is a buying program that supplies consumers with a variety of fresh foods, while providing farmers with a stable market. Sign-up to receive a basket of fresh food each week full of seven to ten different varieties of locally grown produce. You know where your food comes from and you are supporting your local economy!

Farmers Markets

We host markets at various locations throughout Fayette County with our "mobile market." Additionally, we set up shop at markets that exist throughout the county and Southwestern Pennsylvania. We make sure areas that are considered "Food Deserts" have access to fresh local produce, and that our farmers' and artisans' goods are marketed throughout the area.

Nutrition Education

RFEC supports an educated and healthy community. We understand that nutrition education goes hand-in-hand with access to healthy foods. Our nutrition education program uses marketing techniques and hands-on experience to educate the community on how to access, store and prepare local foods, leading to healthier communities.

Rental Opportunities

RFEC has a fully licensed commercial grade kitchen, with multi-temperature storage options, available for rent to local entrepreneurs. Additionally, we have storage space in the warehouse available for lease.
