The Niles Foundation
In partnership with USDA and RFI, TNF’s Halo Food Project (HFP) stewards a necessary and pivotal food system of clean energy retail mobile grocery stores that provide healthy foods for retail with SNAP and EBT accessibility. The community stores will benefit very low-income, low-income, underserved, underrepresented, disadvantaged and BIPOC communities of LA and South LA, giving 1.3 million LA residents an immediate food access and food security action plan.
TNF’s #SouthLAGreenFoodLandProject expands its current green food access spaces into dedicated community urban farms, edible gardens and open green spaces that increase BIPOC Community Food Security Sustainable Green Spaces, Environmental Education, BIPOC Community Engagement, and BIPOC Community Health and Wellness.
It expands and transforms outdoor land or living spaces throughout South LA or surrounding areas of high economic needs. We especially focus on areas that have been abandoned or that we can adopt. The project includes rooftop urban farms, edible parks and gardens, fresh food donations to homeless missions, families in need and and Los Angeles residents.
#SouthLAGreenFoodLandProject was made possible
by the Sony Music Group.
