"The Supportive Partnerships Platform has great people with beautiful hearts that really want us to strive. We’re excited to continue to work together," - Community Youth Leader

Community development is hard work, especially when resources are limited. It’s also vital if you want to improve food security. So what if we took a potluck approach to changemaking? FoodShare offers the Supportive Partnerships Platform, where community-led food initiatives leverage FoodShare’s existing assets to realize the change they seek.

Why Supportive Partnerships?

Systemic inequities affect access to basic needs like food. While FoodShare’s scope isn’t limitless, we can offer resources to groups who have already identified the change they’d like to see in their communities. It’s all about developing community-led and self-determined solutions to address racism and exclusion in the food system.
