Dear Supporter of Food Justice:  

The Detroit Black Community Food Security Network (DBCFSN) sincerely appreciates your interest in our very important work towards establishing food justice and food sovereignty in Detroit.  Our work is guided by the understanding that access to good, clean, sustainable grown food is a basic human right.  As 2015 ends, we’d like to share highlights of our many projects:

Programs and Initiatives 
Healthy Food Complex on Detroit’s North EndSignificant steps have been taken toward the building of a multi-use complex which will include, the Detroit People's Food Co-op,  a Retail Co-op Grocery Store, an Incubator Kitchen, a Community Meeting Space, a Café and new offices for DBCFSN staff.

D-Town Farm - is a seven acre organic farm in Detroit’s Rouge Park. We grow more than 30 different fruits, vegetables and herbs that are sold at farmers markets and to wholesale customers. The farm features four hoop houses for extended-season growing, bee-keeping, large-scale composting, farm tours and an annual Harvest Festival.

Food Warriors Youth Development Program - 
engages young Detroiters in experiences that teach them about food security, food justice, the value of gardening, healthy eating and exercise.

Ujamaa Food Co-op a monthly buying club that allows co-op members to obtain healthy food at below retail cost.

“What’s for Dinner?” Lecture Series - Currently in its fourth year.  The Series features lectures in April, June, August and October that provide Detroiters with in-depth information on food system related issues.
To continue our vital work, we are asking that you make a year-end donation.  If you should need assistance with any donation or have questions, please call 313-345-3663 for assistance.


Sincerely Yours for Food Justice & Sovereignty
