We believe that the community’s inherent power and leadership is the foundation for a truly equitable and sustainable food system.
- We ensure our service delivery is equitably distributed and focus our resources in high needs areas and populations negatively impacted by a broken food system.
- We believe in self-determination, supporting individuals’ and the community’s capacity to reliably grow, sell, access and prepare healthy food.
- We advocate for inclusive stakeholder involvement in decisions on food systems and policies.
- We work in collaboration with food system and racial justice partnerships, advocates, and initiatives to improve SFC’s effectiveness in supporting low-income populations and communities of color.
- We support the development of community leaders who champion SFC’s work and who pass on knowledge and skills that improve healthy food access within their communities.
