DBCFSN receives Kellogg Foundation grant

The Detroit Black Community Food Security Network (DBCFSN) has received a three-year grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. DBCFSN will use the grant to support programs, such as D-Town Farm, Summer Urban Ag Internship Program, Annual Harvest Festival, Food Warriors Youth Development Program, What's for Dinner? Lecture Series, the Ujamaa Food Buying Club and our work to create a retail co-op healthy foods store. It also supports our efforts to encourage a policy environment supportive of a robust localized food system.

The programs are funded by a $750,000.00 grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation of Battle Creek, MI and continue the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s longstanding support of DBCFSN and its programs.
