Fueling Black-led Food Systems Transformation


The purpose of the Black Food Fund is to gather resources to address root causes and fuel transformative, Black-led change in our regional food system. The Black Food Fund operates within an ecosystem of Black-led partners and uses three main strategies: land justice; climate resilience, and restorative capital.


We provide trust-based, non-extractive capital for Black farmers and food entrepreneurs in the PNW. Funds go directly to Black farmers and land stewards, helping them increase farm viability, preserve Black agricultural traditions, and bolster our regional food economies.


The Black Food Fund is founded and led by a collective of Black women who have extensive experience in the food system field as healers, farmers, educators, and advocates. They bring their content expertise, lived experience, and unique perspectives to this effort.
