Food and Farm Initiative
In partnership with the Oak Foundation, Resourceful Communities supports community groups and small farmers working to develop innovative food projects that serve vulnerable populations.
Resourceful Communities helps grassroots organizations plan, manage and carry out programs to improve access to local food. We also help small farmers tap new markets, serve low-income consumers and improve operations.
- For community groups and agencies, we provide project and action planning, community and youth engagement strategies, grant writing support, budgeting and more.
- For local markets, we offer planning in marketing/ communications, outreach strategies, implementation strategies to increase access for low-income customers.
- For small farmers, we provide crop planning, develop practical tracking systems, help connect to new markets, and identify strategies to increase yield.
We also offer a variety of workshops to strengthen skills on the farm and at the market.
