Growing Healthy Communities
Solid Ground recognizes that hunger and health disparities are not due to a lack of sufficient food, but rather the inequities that have been designed into the food system, disproportionately impacting communities of color. In response, Solid Ground’s food programs work with these communities to break down those barriers, so they can have the ability to lead healthful, thriving, independent lives.
How We Help
COMMUNITY FOOD EDUCATION
We works in schools, farms, and with community organizations to provide hands-on education opportunities. Community Food Education supports people to improve their relationship with food by connecting people to where food is grown, teaching cooking and nutrition skills, and providing tools for communities to navigate an inequitable food system.
We work within the emergency food system providing on-the-ground, logistical and financial support. FSS also provides continuing education and other trainings with the goal of bringing an anti-oppression lens to Seattle’s emergency food providers.
