our health
in our own hands

The Black Church Food Security Network utilizes an asset-based approach in organizing and linking the vast resources of historically African American congregations in rural and urban communities to advancing food and land sovereignty.

We have connected over
20 Black farmers in 11 states with African American churches and other faith-based institutions.

Black farmers who are listed within our directory benefit from direct access to Black Churches, seminaries, and Christian Denominations, marketing to our national audience, and networking with other farmers.

On the left map, the orange states denote where our farmers are located. The green icons denote where our partnered churches are located.
