We are working along side comrades for a Just Food System

"Dear Friend,
The Detroit Black Community Food Security Network needs and deserves your financial support. Thanks to your past contributions, we have made significant and exciting progress this year.
Detroit Food Commons – a game changer locally and nationally!
After ten years of research, community engagement, fundraising and planning, we are on the precipice of breaking ground on the Detroit Food Commons. A new two story 34,000 sq. ft. building, it will house the Detroit People’s Food Co-op, four incubator kitchens, a large community meeting space and office space for DBCFSN.
Major financial support garnered so that we can bring the project to the finish line.
Local foundations have pledged more than $4.5 million to the project over the past six months allowing us to have the financing we need to break ground in 2021.
We need your help to raise the funds for key elements of the building and supporting programs such as:
  • Refrigeration and kitchen fixtures
  • Digital media equipment
  • Community education and engagement
Support our leadership in community-based food initiatives that promote food justice.
DBCFSN continues to be a leader in the community. Our efforts promote food justice and self-determination. In addition to the Detroit Food Commons, we operate the seven-acre D-Town Farm and educate young people through our Food Warriors Youth Development Program.
You have seen our proven track record of success over the years. We are asking you to support our work that makes a difference in our community.

Right now, while it's on your mind, will you contribute to DBCFSN? It's easy, tax deductible and secure.
