Description

The Black Church Food Security Network partners Black farmers and urban growers with historically African American congregations to create pipelines for fresh produce from “soil to sanctuary.” We establish popup farm stands to sell produce at churches on days and at times when the congregation normally gathers. In addition, recognizing the role that food justice plays in communal wellbeing, we support economically-abandoned Black communities by partnering with Black Churches in their neighborhoods around a number of objectives:
  • Starting new gardens on church-owned land
  • Expanding existing church gardens
  • Finding, screening, and matching volunteers with various church gardens in our network
  • Establishing pop-up farm stands at churches in the Baltimore Metro area
  • Leading Bible Studies, small group sessions, and presentations at churches on topics which include creation care, environmental stewardship, Afroecology, Radical Black Ecology, food justice and food sovereignty
