About the Urban Food Project

The Urban Food Project aims to build a robust local food economy while creating healthy food access. We are developing a local food distribution system that will improve production, distribution, and purchasing of local food. By assisting producers and business owners we are making fresh fruits and vegetables more readily available and affordable.

 About Farm to Corner Store

The Urban Food Project helps corner store owners successfully stock, promote, and sell fresh, local, produce. This generates additional revenue streams for stores and producers and creates healthy food access points, a need for the 88,000 Birmingham residents living in food deserts.
