Moms Across America
is a National Coalition of Unstoppable Moms.
Our motto is "Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids."
This initiative focuses solely on food and community building and is in the developmental process. “We are seeking and are open to new partners. We will be connecting with them this year as we expand our resources. We hope to hear from our supporters about who best supported them in learning to grow and preserve food,” said Anne Temple, program manager.
This program, which participants are invited to initiate on their block, will create a parallel food system, one street at a time, where people can grow their food, connect with local small farmers, be prepared in times of crisis, and be independent of the current food system.
The Neighborhood Food Network will foster food independence, stronger communities, improved health, decreased violence, and increased survival rates during a crisis. We will accomplish this together by collaborating with our neighbors, starting by supporting the facilitators of the initiative locally, the participants in the pilot program, and on weekly coaching calls to ensure food access for all.
PREPARE FOR THE WORST. EXPECT THE BEST.
Crisis or not, the program will be fostering communities that are connected, compassionate, and thriving. The initiators invite participants to expect that the BEST in people will rise up in the worst of times if an environment of community and partnership is fostered.
The Neighborhood Food Network invites you to be a facilitator on your street, download the flyer this Earth Day weekend, and invite your neighbors on your street to a meeting within the next two weeks. Join the weekly calls on Monday at 8:30 pm ET for guidance, support, and sharing. Why? What are the benefits?
