THE COLOR OF FOOD

The Color of Food is a non-profit initiative that aims to address the lack of voices from Asian, Black, Latino and Native American communities in the dialogue on healthy food and food justice. The hope is that the faces of the food justice movement will represent the communities suffering the injustice.

"We believe the voices from these communities must be heard or we will not have a truly just food revolution. We also believe that the history and stories of many of these farming communities must be preserved and shared widely."

The Color of Food is working in partnership with the Community Vision Council to create an online directory and nationwide map of all farmers, urban growers, food activists, and other food-related initiatives led by people of color and/or communities of color. The directory will allow for easy access by consumers and will also raise a voice for communities of color who are not currently being heard.
