A collaboration for urban farmer-driven community food security in the East Bay
In 10 years California's population will grow from 36 to 46 million people, with 80% concentrated in cities. Over the last decade, urban agriculture has improved access to fresh, affordable and nutritious food in the greater Bay Area – where in many neighborhoods one in three residents are food insecure. As we continue to grow, the San Francisco 9-county Bay Area will need effective urban food production to meet the demand for fresh, healthy, affordable food in low-income communities.
