A little background.

Farmers of color in the United States endure systemic racism within the food system that causes significant and consistent social, economic, and political harm. Community UCC along with 9 other churches in Wake County has sought to help address this by developing a Black Farmer to churches “Community Supported Agriculture” (CSA) with several local farmers. This enables the farmers to create an additional source of income, access new local market(s), and create mutually-beneficial economic partnerships with faith communities. It also enables the churches to increase the food security through improved access to fresh, healthy foods and providing hunger relief for consistently vulnerable populations.

It is an honor for us to be part of this endeavor which is so much more than food, though the food part is great too!! Indeed we have become a family, sharing joys, concerns, ideas and hands. The farmers and church reps meet (virtually) Wednesdays, and these meetings are very moving and full of laughter! (Join us Wednesdays if you like.)  For more information, contact Gary Smith, Justice in a Changing Climate – smithgk@mindspring.com

I hope you will consider subscribing.
