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
Feed em’ Freedom Foundation grows out of the work of Mudbone Grown, a Black-owned small farm enterprise in the business of growing and celebrating culturally-specific ancestral foods, value added products, and food hubs for historically absent or barriered communities. At Mudbone Grown our goal has been to always honor our ancestors' wisdom as land stewards, train the next generation of food movement leaders through farming, while building cultural pride that is rooted in food sovereignty. As we approach our 6th year, we realize that to support the continued development of all of our many efforts, we need to create a different kind of organizational structure for our programming, separate from our farming business. At the end of 2021, our educational, workforce development, and advocacy programs will move from Mudbone Grown to Feed’em Freedom Foundation to provide both the agricultural business and the critical educational and community programming the containers they need to grow and thrive.
Food is a vital connector and a foundation for connection and resilience in the face of gentrification. Feed'em Freedom Foundation strives to grow, cook, and eat together - strengthening the health of our community holistically “from the soil up.”
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.
