Our vision for the 20743 food system is one in which all residents - especially those who suffer at the hands of systemic racism and a history of disenfranchisement - are in positions to create and control food production, food business, and food access in their communities.

The Food Justice Coalition of 20743 is a group of local organizations and residents who do the work of establishing food justice throughout the 20743 zip code. We were formed in February 2017 as a joint project of the Prince George’s County Food Equity Council and the Capital Area Food Bank. We see that our current food system prioritizes profits over people and takes power away from communities, especially when those communities are people of color. We've come together to change that.

Our definition of food justice is “affordable, accessible, quality food for all that reflects what the community wants, and fosters health and economic growth.”
