Root & grow a local food system that promotes freedom, hope, & dignity in food traditions resulting in holistic health for Black, Latino/a/x, Asian, & Indigenous communities.
Test ways to bridge community power with organizational power to spark & expand food justice initiatives led by the community.
What do we hope to learn together through the Network?
- If we cultivate welcoming spaces for community building, will it spark and expand food justice in Greater Cleveland?
- If we support community-led action with financial and technical resources, will it tip the food system to fairness?
- If we root and grow community ownership of local food systems, will it promote equity, vibrancy, and holistic health?

The Nourishing Power Network is working to root & grow a food system that works for all.
It consists of four components: the Advisory Council, Nourishing Power Networking, the Food Systems Change Fellowship, and a Nutrition Equity Fund. The Advisory Council, Fellowship, and Fund will require an application, and the Networking is open to all!
