Open Food Network is the first project by the Open Food Foundation. It is a free and open source project aimed at supporting diverse food enterprises and making it easy to access local and sustainable food. The Open Food Foundation is a non-profit, registered charity established in October 2012, to develop, accumulate and protect open source knowledge, code, applications and platforms for fair and sustainable food systems.

They worked with RHoK at the Melbourne 2013 WInter Hackathon to develop the initial Open Food Network application, which connected willing buyers and sellers of local, organic food in urban centres.
