Farm. Food. Familias Mutual-Aid Meals(FFF) is a project co-led by Getting Grown Collective and the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization with chef support from Urban Pilon, Fresher Together, Amor y Sofrito and Kwamena to prepare and deliver meals to families in Little Village, Englewood, South Chicago and other neighborhoods on the southside of Chicago. FFF started with 50 weekly meals on May 6th, 2020 and currently serves 350 meals weekly.

FFF publishes this GoFundMe to crowd fund support for programming to continue through 2022.

FFF services some of the most affected communities by lack of access to food, increased loss of work, systematic disenfranchisement, strained access to healthcare, an overload of local food pantries, COVID-19 and other food & environmental- related health issues. These communities also have a high number of folks working as essential workers. FFF aims to provide community members with weekly nutritional and culturally significant meals as an offering of nourishment and mutual care.

A portion of produce for each meal is donated by urban agriculture-based nonprofits and businesses located in Chicago’s Southeast and Southwest sides including Gardeneers and Urban Canopy. To shed light on local farm businesses led by Black and Brown communities, another portion of produce was purchased from Cedillo’s Fresh Produce, Catatumbo Cooperative Farm and Fresher Together.

The funds from this campaign will cover the cost of the following components of programming from July-December 2021:

-purchase produce from Chicago-based BIPOC owned and operated growing spaces

- Support youth interns

-Support chefs and meal ingredients

-Support delivery drivers

- Support local BIPOC led community Kitchens

- Purchase to-go containers
