Organizations Working Together
Over the weekend, the Family Justice Center partnered with The Black Neighborhood in hosting a pop up farmers market! This was the first of its kind and a very special event for everyone involved. The Family Justice Center has had the pleasure of working with The Black Neighborhood in the past and supporting their food giveaway initiative.
This year LaShara Johnson from the Family Justice Center had the pleasure of spearheading the initiative on behalf of our organization. She wanted to give community members more of a choice in the services that were being provided to them.
The McGlothen Temple Church-God in North Richmond Ca were gracious to let us use their parking lot for this event. North Richmond is an underserved area in the Richmond community and it’s where we felt that a food give away would have the biggest impact. We also brought in Fresh Approach, Urban Tilth and White Pony.
The Black Neighborhood usually gives away food to over 200 people, but because this was our first time in this area we had a goal of 100 people. After providing fresh produce, jackets, resources and canned goods over 150 people we can say that our goal expectations were surpassed! We look forward to continuing these partnerships to keep giving more opportunities.
