Collective Decision-Making

We embrace and encourage participatory decision-making in both our grantmaking process and strategic direction.

Justice In All Its Forms

Racial justice is our guide and informs how we understand and interact with other forms of oppression, including sexuality, gender, and economic class.

Cultural Organizing

We strive to lift up a counter narrative rooted in community cultural wealth and capacity.

People Power

The core of our work is continually forging strategic connections so that food systems are shaped and determined by the people who comprise them, not corporate interests.

Reclaiming Ancestral Traditions

Rather than claiming that we are creating a new model for food and land sovereignty, we recognize that centuries long practices are the way forward.
