The 4th Annual Washington, D.C. Food Tank Summit is just around the corner, and we’re excited to hear from, collaborate with, and meet our member organizations based in the D.C. area. In preparation for the upcoming Summit, Food Tank is highlighting 32 Food and Agriculture organizations helping to build a better food system in and around Washington, D.C. Below are just a couple from that list:
1. Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture
Based in Alexandria, VA, this nonprofit promotes equity and sustainability in the Washington, D.C. area food system through a multi-faceted operation. Arcadia Farm uses sustainable growing practices and serves as an educational site for farmers and students, growing vegetables for the organization’s Mobile Market operating in underserved communities.
2. City Blossoms
City Blossoms works in Washington, D.C. cultivating “creative, kid-driven green spaces.” In addition to providing Community Green Spaces for public use, City Blossoms offers garden-based early childhood programming and the Mighty Greens youth entrepreneurship program focused on growing and harvesting produce while learning to grow a business.
3. Community Foodworks
