Foodocracy has created the Farm Fund to provide direct relief to small, family owned farms. Through donations, sponsorships and funds raised through the bean club we will be providing women and BIPOC farmers with seed grants in the spring.
White farmers received nearly 97 percent of the $9.2 billion provided by October 2020 through USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program. Black farmers have lost 90% of their land over the last century due to systemic discrimination and the debt cycle it created.
30 percent of farmers in the U.S. are women, yet obstacles like lack of access to land, financing, and equal treatment—put female farmers at a significant disadvantage before they ever plow a field or sow a seed.
The Foodocracy Group is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting a more independent and sustainable food system by assisting small scale farmers and small batch producers in creating fair and equitable income opportunities. Our mission is anchored in the fundamental belief that food should be good for the environment, our health and local economies. Your donation helps us create educational programing, promote small, family owned farms and artisans and create grants for women and minority farmers.
