All About Us
Our Story, Our Team, and Our Focus ...
Everyone who we work with is part of our team. We seek to be participatory and collaborative. Our team is made up of community members, youth, families, growers, producers, processors, food organizations, health care professionals, educators, and many others. In an effort to be systematic and understand issues and opportunities better, we identified three priority areas and formed groups that can work on them. The following are the groups and their mission:
Growers/Producers Group - Advance food production to increase access to fresh foods.
Community Food Organizations/Food Pantries - Listen to beneficiaries to increase access to nutritious foods and remove barriers to service.
Neighborhoods, Youth, and Families - Engage neighborhoods and families to remove barriers to accessing nutritious foods, and work with school communities to advocate for connecting hunger to health and increasing access to nutritious foods.
