We focus on freshness. By 2019, we expect to be distributing 15 million pounds of produce each year.
We champion self-reliance. Our nutrition and garden education programs, as well as community food organizing activities, increase self-reliance and improve the health of communities.
We advocate for change. We advocate for public policies and programs that address hunger at its root causes.
We urge lawmakers to make food a priority by investing in policies and programs that reduce hunger and build healthy communities.
We recognize race and place are central determinants in individual and community health.
We commit to combating systems and behavior which undercut food security.
We actively cultivate new strategies for underserved communities and seek to engage people facing hunger in both long-term solutions and day-to-day program deliver
