USDA Community Food Security Projects

The USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Community Food Project Grants attempt to increase food security in communities across the US through community gardens, youth/school gardening projects, promoting local food purchases, and food access and outreach. The report, “The Activities and Impacts of Community Food Projects 2005-2009” captures broad outcomes from the 307 CFPs funded between 2005 and 2009.
