Detroit Black Community Food Security Network

DBCFSNDBCFSN Food Warriors Youth Development Program teaches youth to advocate for food justice through school/community gardens, nutrition education, and the development of critical media that addresses the issues of food insecurity in Detroit’s Black Community.
The program uses the Nguzo Saba (Seven Principles) as well as the principles of Ma’at, both of which are deeply rooted in African tradition, as tools of cultural transmission to revision youth to the dignity inherent in sustainable community agricultural practices.
