Over its 40 year history, Access has been passionate about finding solutions to poverty. Over the years our strategies have adjusted, but our collaborative effort has remained. We are more impactful when we gather people together, stakeholders from broad backgrounds, to address key issues of food access and poverty.
The values that Access upholds include community development, food justice, economic development, equity and anti-racism. Our work includes collaborative food systems programming, educational workshops on poverty related issues and work with congregations in developing best practices in engaging issues of poverty in their neighborhoods. Throughout our programs, Access’ vision is to cultivate a community rooted in equitable systems.
In light of this vision, we want to celebrate the people who have strengthened the community over the years, addressing core issues of equity and poverty with a fresh perspective that lines up with Access vision and values. This month, Access went on the road to deliver Freshlist Awards. Join us by watching the video below and check out the award recipients! Thank you to our volunteers, Tom Hillen with News 8 and the Freshlist team for making this happen!
