Fair Food Access Lincoln Park
DCGP joins neighborhood residents and 4 other agency partners — CHUM, Duluth LISC, Seeds of Success, and Healthy Duluth Area Coalition — to create policy, systems and environmental change in health equity and food access centered around 5 community identified strategies. Together we have created new community gardens, a Lincoln Park farmer“s market, a DTA Grocery Express bus, affordable cooking and nutrition classes, with another garden and a deep winter greenhouse in the works.
Fair Food Access celebrates the new DTA Grocery Express, with a special route and storage bins to safely transport purchases home. The Grocery Express begins September 1, 2015.
Emerald Community Gardeners share a first spring harvest of salad greens at a planning meeting. The Emerald Community Garden was created as part of Lincoln Park Fair Food Access strategies to increase fresh, healthy foods grown in the neighborhood.
