Local Foods Grocery Boxes will support the MAAFA Redemption Project
in West Garfield Park, Chicago. MAAFA Redemption Project recruits at-risk emerging adult men from the area to invest in them with housing, employment, educational opportunities, and evidence-based wrap-around social services. Local Foods will make regular deliveries of food to MAAFA starting in July, sourced from our local network of farmers and food producers. 25% of the purchase price of your Local Foods Grocery Box will go directly to that program.
Contributions can also be made directly here
to support Local Foods donations to MAAFA Redemption Project.
