What is food sovereignty?
Communities can be food secure but not have access to fresh, healthy food. GGA believes in food sovereignty — that it matters where our calories come from. Communities with limited or no access to healthy food are at increased risk of diet-related diseases.
Combined, our three partner farms grow approximately 5,000 lbs of high quality produce each year. Next year, we are positioned to produce even more as Paideia relocates its urban farm to a larger plot of land in south Atlanta. The new farm will be closer to THES and the women’s center, which will allow the alliance to better support each other.
