Thousands of deliveries in, we're turning an emergency pandemic response into a year-round, sustainable ecosystem. Our network is a place to generate community power, take care of one another, and exchange critical information as neighbors.
We root this mutual aid initiative in a long tradition of collaboration in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Chicago. Our list of recipients on the South Side of Chicago includes 400 households, self-identified as Black and low-income.
By maintaining a slow-growing rotation of recipients, we’re building long-term relationships of care. We rely on a broad, grassroots base of recurring donations to fuel our work, allowing us to commit to local farms and South Side families one growing season at a time: every donation acts twice, funding an ethical food system and putting food on our neighbor’s tables.
