KUOW Spotlight: Rainier Beach Action Coalition Grant

RBAC Farm StandRainier Beach Action Coalition received a $75,0000 grant to develop farm stands in the Rainier Beach Community to increase equal access to healthy, local food in partnership with the Ethiopian Community in Seattle and Roots of all Roads.

This project has 3 goals: To create access to healthy food, to provide education and job opportunities for youth, and to support King County farms. Instead of an inequitable model, they will develop a pilot of mutual support and partnership between farmers and the community they serve. They will achieve this by hiring and training young adults of color to operate farm stands on behalf of farms owned by people of color.
