DC Greens is a leader in a number of local coalitions, where nonprofits, government officials and the broader community come together to advance collective goals.
DC Farmers Market Collaborative - we co-convene this body of DC Farmers Market managers, together with D.C. Hunger Solutions. With quarterly meetings, we are able to share information and synchronize with city agencies to ensure that our farmers market landscape is maximally beneficial as a food access tool.
DC Farm to School Network - as the D.C. "core partner" to the National Farm to School Network, we coordinate DC-based organizations and individuals working to connect schools to local food and food systems education. The network includes nonprofits, farmers, teachers, food service providers, and agency officials. Subscribe to our newsletter for regular DC farm to school updates and learnings.
DC Fair Food for All - an advocacy body that brings together nonprofit partners running food access programs with the D.C. Department of Health. Partners include Martha's Table, Capital Area Food Bank, D.C. Hunger Solutions, DC Central Kitchen and Food & Friends.
"Diabesity" Committee - Alongside Dr. Bill Dietz of George Washington University's Redstone Center, DC Greens co-chairs the Department of Health's Diabesity Committee, hosted by the Chronic Disease Division. This body convenes clinical and community partners to address key policy and program issues that cut across agencies and are designed to decrease diabetes rates in the District of Columbia
