By setting an inclusive table, DC Greens drives long-term systems change to advance food justice in the nation's capital.
We do this by:
Building bridges between government, private sector, communities and non-profits
Developing advocacy channels to amplify marginalized voices
Curating best practices and leveraging existing infrastructure
Responding to community needs
Providing thought leadership
We're working toward a city where food education is on the menu in every classroom; where doctors write prescriptions for fresh fruits and vegetables as a matter of course; where urban agriculture is a valued element of our cityscape; and where zipcode doesn't determine life expectancy.
By leveraging existing infrastructure, resources and talent, and doing the work of collaboration, we are building a healthy food system that can be a model for the nation.
