Projects Network: The Color of Food is growing an online directory and map worldwide of farmers, urban growers, food activists, and other food-related initiatives led by people of color and/or communities of color. This not only allows for easy access for consumers and increased marketing for farmers and markets, but will also serve as a powerful model within the food movement where the voices of communities of color – our most impacted communities on the issue of food security, land rights and health - are not being heard loud and clear.
