OAK CLIFF VEGGIE PROJECT
The Oak Cliff Veggie Project believes that no matter who you are or where you’re from, everyone deserves access to quality food. The Oak Cliff Veggie Project affects positive change in the agricultural and dietary landscapes of underserved neighborhoods in Dallas by providing access to education about the cultivation and use of fresh produce.
Many of the communities served by Oak Cliff Veggie Project faced additional food insecurities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Oak Cliff Veggie Store provides free food monthly to Dallas residents and allows community members to access fresh produce on a consistent basis. Additionally, to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Oak Cliff Veggie Project began providing weekly food deliveries to homebound families. They need continued funding to support increased staffing and volunteer needs, food distribution, and educational and gardening needs.
