Healthy local food builds healthy local communities


At the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, we believe increasing access to healthy food is a key pathway to improving health outcomes for vulnerable children and their families. Transforming local food systems is critical to achieving lasting and systemic change, and requires deep collaboration. 

In 2017, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation provided a more than $2 million grant to help form The Mississippi Food Justice Collaborative. The Collaborative is a partnership between six groups: National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT), Asian Americans for Change, FoodCorps, Milestone Cooperative Association, Mississippi Farm to School Network and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. 

This video highlights the work of the Mississippi Food Justice Collaborative as they increase access to and knowledge about healthy food, supporting and collaborating with each other to improve the overall health and well-being of their communities.
