Community Food Security Coalition

The Community Food Security Coalition was a food sovereignty grounded in the principles of justice, democracy, and sustainability. The coalition sought to further these goals through a comprehensive approach of policy advocacy, education and networking, and technical training.

CFSC worked with The California Food and Justice Coalition, supported a national Farm to School and Farm to College network, and advocated for sustainable and equitable national food policies in Washington, DC. Members of the coalition were involved in a number of committees that focus on various aspects of community food security work such as food retail, food and faith, international links, and urban agriculture. The coalition supported community food projects by advocating for and providing assistance to groups receiving or applying to the Community Food Projects Competitive Grants Program.

On August 6, 2012, the board announced that the organization would transfer projects to other organizations and close.[1]
