Who is Whole Cities Foundation?
Whole Cities Foundation is an organization helping to expand access to fresh, healthy food and nutrition education. We fund grants to nonprofits with food access projects like urban farms, mobile markets, and community gardens through a community-led process.
Our approach is guided by our Community First Principles to build partnerships with locally-led organizations to help create thriving local food systems and grow community health.
We know that grassroots solutions are often the strongest, so we work with local organizations to craft our grant programs, get the word out about opportunities, and choose grant recipients. We believe in shifting power dynamics both between philanthropy and community and within communities themselves.
When we use the term “food access,” we’re talking about healthy food options where…
- Fruits and vegetables are affordable, high quality, familiar, close by and community members have a safe, accessible way to reach them.
- Community members have a say in the sources of the produce. (i.e., running an urban farm, directing their dollars to mobile markets, or investing their time in a community garden)
- Access is for the long-term. It is not immediate hunger alleviation such as food banks or other food donation efforts.
- Growing food locally increases the availability of high quality, affordable produce; employs more neighbors; and keeps more dollars in the local economy.
Voice and Tone
We do use language that:
- Recognizes the assets, strengths and goals of a community or person
- Celebrates local leadership and projects
We don’t use language that:
- Reinforces a stereotype of a community
- Characterizes a community or person in a way they wouldn’t use to describe themselves
- Incorrectly assumes a static, simplified identity – “homeless person”
- Implies a community is helpless, incapable, or in need of saving
- Food desert (prefer: neighborhood experiencing barriers to healthy food access; neighborhood with few fresh, healthy options)
- Minorities (prefer: people of color, communities of color, etc.)
- Homeless person (prefer: person experiencing homelessness)
