Food and Faith project
The Baltimore Food and Faith Project was launched by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) in the summer of 2007. It remained a key initiative of CLF’s Food Communities and Public Health Program until 2016. The project’s purpose was to engage with congregations, religious schools and faith-based and secular organizations on a variety of food system issues related to environmental stewardship, social and economic justice, health and nutrition, hunger and community food security, and farm animal welfare. Our efforts engaged representatives from more than 250 area congregations; funded or otherwise supported the creation and maintenance of nearly 50 faith community gardens; and reached countless individuals through blogposts, radio shows, town halls, articles and speaking engagements at various events.
Currently, the key aspects of the project have been transitioned to Johns Hopkins Health System’s Office of Community Health. Adrian Mosley is the executive director of that office. (Contact Adrian Mosley at: Phone: 410-502-6524 | fax: 410-614-1476 | email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
