Today for #ARTISTSFORBLACKLIVES I’m spotlighting Black Church Food Security. A little bit about this great organization in their words - We work with congregations to establish gardens and agricultural projects on Black Church-owned land. We link farmers with congregations for niche farmer’s markets which happen inside places of worship. We conduct asset-mapping of Black Churches and the neighborhoods where they are located to help leverage their resources and build power for historically marginalized Black communities.
