The Mecklenburg Soil and Water Conservation District stands in solidarity with you, as together we work to resolve injustices that have caused so much pain and suffering in our community.
We pledge our support for solutions that resolve long-standing inequities and especially those related to agriculture and food system access endemic to food insecure communities. These communities are very often the same black and brown communities disproportionately impacted by health pandemics, as well as climate and environmental injustices.
We pledge our continued partnership with those grassroots organizations which provide fresh produce to food insecure neighborhoods and expanded their service to thousands of families in need as the COVID-19 pandemic spread.
We acknowledge the enormous challenges ahead for local government to act swiftly and intentionally to heal traumatized people, and we recognize that this effort will entail a multi-faceted investment in underserved communities. We stand prepared with unwavering commitment to reduce food insecurity as a top priority.
