Training and human development
Institutional racism in the agricultural policies of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) – nicknamed “the last plantation” – is also to blame for the loss of Black land. Over the years, studies by the US Civil Rights Commission, as well as by the USDA itself, showed that the USDA actively discriminated against Black farmers. A 1964 Civil Rights Commission study showed that the agency unjustly denied Black farmers loans, disaster aid and representation on agricultural committees. (2)

Wills and estate planning

Guiding Each One To Redeem One
Hebrews 8:11 – “AND THEY SHALL NOT TEACH EVERYONE HIS FELLOW CITIZEN, AND EVERYONE HIS BROTHER, SAYING, ‘KNOW THE LORD,’ FOR ALL WILL KNOW ME, FROM THE LEAST TO THE GREATEST OF THEM.
Health and Wellness
We believe no family deserves to go hungry, and no food should end up in a landfill. This is why we hope to distribute fresh food across our great city for free. Your support will help us donate fresh fruits and vegetables from Florida’s farmers and putting it into the hands of the hundreds of low-income families in need of nutritious food.
We assist in the development of Micro-funding streams to better serve the unique financial operating needs of beginning, niche and the smallest of family farm operations.
