The Food Heritage Foundation (FHF) is a Lebanese organization aiming at the conservation of Lebanon’s indigenous culinary knowledge through the preservation, documentation and revival of Lebanon’s traditional food heritage.
FHF believes that local food heritage is a potent tool for economic development. It aims to increase consumers’ awareness and demand for healthy home-cooked local cuisine and produce by establishing permanent linkages between urban and rural communities through which small farmers and producers can inform about their culinary and agricultural traditions and directly sell their products.
The foundation works closely with the Environment and Sustainable Development Unit at the American University of Beirut.
At the Foundation, we believe that by preserving our ancestor’s culinary treasures, we ensure a legacy for future generations.
