Black Church Food Security Network
The Black Church Food Security Network utilizes an asset-based approach in organizing and linking the vast resources of historically African American congregations in rural and urban communities to advancing food and land sovereignty. We work with congregations to establish gardens and agricultural projects on Black Church-owned land. We link farmers with congregations for niche farmer’s markets which happen inside places of worship. We conduct asset-mapping of Black Churches and the neighborhoods where they are located to help leverage their resources and build power for historically marginalized Black communities.
