Founded in 2015, the Black Church Food Security Network (BCFSN) is working to create Black-led food systems anchored by Black churches in partnership with Black farmers. Our work is rooted in the principles of Black food and land sovereignty. Therefore, we are not a food charity organization. We are a self-help organization that utilizes an asset-based community development model that leverages and maximizes the existing resources of the Black Church community. Through this approach, we are advancing health, wealth, and power for our people!
We currently work with farmers, churches, organizations, and seminaries in Ohio, Maryland, Washington D.C, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, Tennessee, and Texas.
