Motherland works with neighborhoods and communities to acquire and transform vacant land into urban farms to grow culturally relevant and fresh food to meet the diverse needs of the community. Given the complexity of the situation, we collaborate with local healthcare institutions, educational institutions, and community leaders to address food insecurity holistically and through a system approach. We consider and address multiple factors affecting access and consumption of healthy food. For example, we collaborate with local hospitals and other healthcare institutions to host educational events onsite where community members participate and receive education on different topics, including nutrition, diet related chronic diseases, and physical activities. During the growing seasons, we hold cultural food festivals where neighbors share cultural foods. We also provide education and demonstrations on how to prepare healthy food from scratch and on a budget.
