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?
