Black Church food security network

Thank you to everyone who attended this year's Season Launch Event!  People from Maryland, New Jersey, and Ohio came together to build relationships, strategize, and dream about what our collaborative efforts could help produce.


We are excited about our plans to strengthen existing church gardens in our Network while establishing new gardens in Baltimore and on Maryland's Eastern Shore.  We will also move forward this year with a Food Value Chain Partnership with farmers in eastern North Carolina.


Special thanks to Maxine White from Coalition for Healthier Eating and Julius Tillery of Black Cotton for the phenomenal job they did as our Keynote Speakers.


Stay tuned for our monthly convenings around the region!  This will be our best year yet!
