Written by contributing author, Heber Brown III

When the pandemic hit, the work Pastor Heber Brown III had been putting in to connect Black farmers and Black churches became even more essential. This post from our archives 

Food As the Front Door highlights:

  • The power of inspiration from earlier church leaders and crises
  • How food—and meeting people’s basic needs in holistic ways—can open the door to a variety of ministries and connections
  • Ministry that promotes “human flourishing, resistance against oppression, and communal self-determination”

What might the food ministries you are a part of learn from the Black Church Food Security Network?
