Partnering with the Somali Bantu Community Farming Program
We believe that creating access to the means of food production is the most effective strategy to empower people experiencing food insecurity. In solidarity with the Somali Bantu Community Association (SBCA), CCFSC submitted a proposal to USDA Community Food Projects in their name with CCFSC as sub-awardee. This four-year, $400,000 grant was awarded with the project beginning in September 20l6. Through this initiative, CCFSC is supporting the Bantu community’s expressed desire to return to farming, as well as building the SBCA’s organizational and leadership capacity.
