Black Churches Are Growing Food, Empowering Black Communities & Farmers
Grocery shelves are empty across the country, a clear sign that Black people must become self-reliant. Well before the ‘rona craze, however, a network of Black churches chose self determination for Black communities, through agriculture. The Black Church Food Security Network (BCFSN) is empowering Black communities, farmers and congregations. Love them or hate them, Black churches are anchor institutions. They can be anchors of security and power or simply deadweight: BCFSN chooses the former.
