Grocery Co-ops would not have the abundance of produce without the innovations and hundreds of agricultural techniques and patents produced by George Washington Carver.

Our pop-up market, Field of Greens Market at the Nats Academy is OPEN 5-7p tonight. Come out for a weekly share of fresh, organic and local produce. 🌿 🌿🌿 .
.

Year round access to healthy food is a basic right. #DYK? “In the District of Columbia, issues surrounding generational poverty and food access run deep. Over 34,000 residents, primarily African Americans living in Wards 7 and 8, live in “food deserts,” with homes more than a mile away from a supermarket.” (source: @doldc) .
.

The Field of Greens Market will be open every week all winter long to serve the grocery gap in Ward 7. We are so grateful for our continuing partnership with @natsacademy and @ymcadc to help build a more equitable local food system.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving with friends and family.

The Joyful Food Markets, a collaboration between @MarthasTable and @CapitalAreaFoodBank, provide free fresh fruits, vegetables, and market staples to 38 schools in Wards 7 and 8 of #WashingtonDC. Complete with food education and tastings, the markets engage the families of students in discussions about healthy recipes and options. The WAP Health Corps team, pictured here at Friendship Charter School in Southeast Washington, has volunteered several times with the @FriendshipPCS @JoyfulFoodMarkets to help with food distribution and cooking activities for the students.

When the farmers market season ends, food access becomes limited for communities who rely on the market for healthy and fresh food. We are so pleased to announce that the Field of Greens Market in Ward 7 has been extended through the fall and winter months!
The market is open every Wednesday from 4-7:30pm at the concession stand at the @NatsAcademy. 4P FOODS is grateful for our community partners @ymcadcfood @ymcadc and @natsacademy and for the opportunity to connect local residents with fresh organic produce! 🌿 #FieldofGreensMarket

#newmoon yesterday. I spoke at the city's first ever Candidates Food Forum at the @npr headquarters. Big thanks @dc_greens for having me. Congratulations and good luck to the running candidates. The most important fact to walk a away with is "community outreach". Candidates please budget & WORK with big and small non profits like @dc_greens & @thegreenscheme to insure that we're educating and informing those that are in need that they are needed. The future looks bright for the city. #dcfoodjustice LℲF big love. ❤️ teboogiethepoet #tbtp #biglove #thenewcool #gonegreen #streetstyle #streetphotography #thedistrict #blessed #Aintnobutterfliesinthedark #poetrycommunity #hiphop #rapper #author #poet #three #eight #healthyfood #healthyliving #locs #loclivin #spanish #mexico #soufside #ambassador #creativedirector #entrapreneur

Since it’s #lunchtime 🥪🥗 we want to introduce you to our partners: Plenty To Eat—a food pantry located right here at @academyofhope! Access to food can be a challenge for learners and members of our community. Plenty To Eat provides food at no cost. As if that weren’t great enough, Plenty To Eat is operated by an AoH Alumna! How cool is that?! We also partner with @loveandcarrots to nurture a beautiful garden out front, and once a month, @CapitalAreaFoodBank supports a #MobileMarket at AoH. Stop by our next Market on May 23 at #OurWard5 site and walk away with fresh produce at no cost! #AoHCares #DCCharterProud #ThankATeacher #CharterSchoolsWeek

RashidunDC at the #GroceryWalk we gave away a van full of grocery staples and stood strong for #DCfoodjustice #grocerywalkdc
We walked and rallied for #dcfoodjustice at the Grocery Walk
We gave out a van of free grocery staples and 100 Qurans today. Food for both the body and the soul- follow our work @rashidundc the areas we serve has one grocery store that takes 40 minutes to get to for many residents- many of whom are elderly or mothers of young children #fightpoverty #dcfoodjustice #feedthehooddc #feedthehood #rashidundc
1 grocery store for 80k people: we want a food co-op that people can own & control NOT just another corporation w/ inferior products or prices poor people can't afford. East of the River has been neglected so long & the deficiencies are so great that we are actually primed to redesign the capitalistic business model in favor for more visionary efforts of self determination and community control by the people who live there because clearly what has been done to us is not working for us. #GroceryWalk #dcfoodjustice #foodjustice

@byp100 ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽. We are a ground of young black organizers (age 18-35) fighting for black liberation throughout the country and across the world . We are abolitionists meaning we don’t believe in prisons , police , or any type of state sanctioned violence . We believe in funding black futures . Today hundreds of folks came out to demonstrate their frustration with food deserts. Between ward 7 & 8, there are only 3 grocery stores while other wards have over 9 stores . We walked 2 miles from one grocery store to the nearest metro station . -
-
But this isn’t solely about grocery stores . As @erin.charde said , this is about self determination . Black folks deciding how and when to nourish their bodies . This is about increasing funds for government programs like SNAP , increasings for food co-op , kitchen incubators , community gardens , fresh air , and fresh food ! People over profit ! Nourishment over profit . Health over profit ! #fundblackfutures #buildblackfutures #foodjusticedc #grocerywalkdc #dcfoodjustice
