Good Food Advocacy Campaign and Northside Growers Collaborative

A goal of Appetite for Change is to create a local-food, value-based supply chain that contributes to greater food equity and is owned, built-by, and for the benefit of, low-income members of the African American community in North Minneapolis. This project organizes African American urban farmers in North Minneapolis, and builds capacity of local food-justice organizers to implement food-based policy, systems, and environmental change. Food Ambassadors will lead the Good Food Advocacy Campaign, while the growers will organize with technical assistance from partner organizations. Planned outcomes are to build the power of African American community members to advocate for food policy, systems, and environmental changes; increase North Minneapolis urban farmers capacity to work collaboratively together to market and distribute locally grown produce; and increase organizational ability to develop and train community leaders in the food movement.
