The Raw Feeding Community


The Raw Feeding Community began as a Facebook group which was established in 2012. It grew quickly, reaching over 75,000 members and still constantly growing. Within that time, the @rawfeedingcommunity instagram account was established as well, which currently has over 30,000 followers.

The Community was created in order to provide a friendly, welcoming, convenient source of information and discussion for all of raw feeders. We strive to provide as much knowledge on raw diets as possible, to beginners and experienced raw feeders alike – whether they are interested in feeding prey model raw, BARF, and/or pre-made commercial products, or even feeding a partial or supplemental raw diet. RFC’s main goal is to help owners improve their pet’s diets by providing easy-to-access, unbiased, evidence based information.
