Feed'em Freedom Foundation
Feed’em Freedom Foundation (FFF) ignites and centers Black Agriculturists to participate as owners and movement leaders within agriculture, land stewardship, regional food security response, and economic prosperity.
Bottom Line for Portland
Our vision for creating an Agricultural Food Hub and Black Community Food Center is multidimensional. One part of it is through the continuation of building out our food pantry - which we call The Center - in East Country. Through The Center we have an opportunity to invest directly in our Black and Brown farmers by purchasing products from them. This is about creating opportunities for more sustainable access to culturally specific and relevant foods as well as creating a gathering space for cultural connections. In addition, we are working with youth in our community to provide access to representation and future-proofing of our food system through teaching the next generation of changemakers and food system leaders by providing career opportunities in the food system that we are working to change.
Creating prosperity and bridging the wealth gap can’t happen without land access. If you can get on that land and work the soil, grow food and create jobs, you can create a path toward community sovereignty
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Feed’em Freedom Foundation(FFF) focuses on creating culturally relevant spaces that provide respite as well as access to resources and opportunities for the Black and Brown Community. Through their connection to Mudbone Grown and other Black, Indigenous, and POC farmers and producers, FFF works to uplift their presence and to help dismantle the anti-black, anti-racist narrative that permeates in the current food system. FFF understands that hunger is driven and perpetuated by inequities due to structural racism and seeks to provide resources to address those factors while working to foster change for the Black Community.
