  • Food Oasis: Partnership Commitments

    Becoming a Food Oasis is about the process of building a diverse coalition of residents that represent a wide cross-section of a community. Communities need a multi-sector approach to achieve and maintain success, and with that they need a core set of partners who contribute time, expertise, or other resources to advance their mission and goals.

  • Please list out key partnerships, along with the role or specialization they play in your coalition. Include details of their mission, and highlight any programs, projects, or events that align with healthy food access/supply/consumption. We recommend a minimum of 3 organizational partners for this work such as a local non-profit, municipal department, food bank, or faith-based organization. (250 words max)
