Food Security

The intersection of rising food prices with urban disinvestment have created an opportunity for urban agriculture, food security and food justice in cities across the United States. As the experience of Al Aubry shows, growing food for oneself or one’s family can bring pride to an individual, a block, a neighborhood, or an entire city. From New Orleans to Detroit and beyond, people in cities are taking greater control over their food supplies, and decreasing the distance that their food travels from its source to the kitchen. To learn more about different ways this work is being carried, out you can start with some of the resources to the right.
