The Victory Garden travels to Oakland and to the Mandela Foods Coop, a cooperative grocery store created by the community.
Raise the Ladder
Our approach is based on a systems model that addresses issues of economic disinvestment, food insecurity, and health inequity, building on community assets to cultivate a thriving food hub.
Food to Families
In partnership with the West Oakland Health Center, the Foods to Families (F2F), a 3-year project that wrapped up in 2013, provided health & wellness workshops, cooking demos, and group experiences for community to community families.
