ASHLAND CHERRYLAND FOOD POLICY COUNCIL 

The Ashland Cherryland Food Policy Council (ACFPC) was an effort supported by Mandela Partners to ensure that local government policy efforts created a secure food system and a vibrant agricultural “green” community in the Ashland Cherryland community. Now the Eden Area Food Alliance (EAFA), council members continue to help prioritize local plans involving land access, land use for growing and harvesting of food, community greening, urban farms, street vending, farmers markets, and efforts contributing to local sustainability.

THE ASHLAND CHERRYLAND 
URBAN GREENING MASTER PLAN

The Urban Greening Master Plan project was catalyzed by a group of residents that wanted to take action to address community disparities by designating Ashland Cherryland as a “green district.”

 

The Plans sought to inform the active Eden Area Livability Initiative process (EALI*), by creating a chance to add greening and environment projects to housing and health planning. Mandela MarketPlace facilitated the creation of a resident-informed Master Plan for a healthy green community.

food

to

families

In partnership with the West Oakland Health Center, the Foods to Families (F2F) program provided health & wellness workshops, cooking demos, and group experiences for community families.

 

Through an integrated curriculum, mothers gained expertise and share resources to build the health of their families and communities.

 

In addition to regular classes, expecting mothers also received healthy food 'prescriptions' which could be redeemed at any Healthy Neighborhood Store Alliance (HNSA) partners to incentivize healthy eating in their daily lives, complementing the F2F curriculum.
