Over the past year, our work in food and nutrition has evolved and expanded. We started by growing food at the Bainum Foundation Farm for underserved communities in the District of Columbia. Last week, at the tail end of our first growing season, we gathered 20 partners from food-related organizations at the Farm to share our work and to explore ways we can work together to strengthen the local food system.
“It was an honor to host so many local change agents at our Farm,” said my colleague Katie Jones, Director of the Food Security Initiative for the Foundation. “I strongly believe we can create a sustainable, end-to-end solution that provides equitable access to healthy food for all residents of the District — but only by coming together and collaborating. We hope this event will serve as the catalyst for multiple powerful partnerships and real change for our community.”
