“I’m tired from people begging for Christmas food. They didn’t care about the kind – turkeys or you know. They just needed food.” – Reverend Annie Chambers.
Half of the New Afrikan community in Baltimore live in food deserts. Whether we call them “Healthy Food Priority Areas” or just a plain old food desert, people are struggling to find affordable, healthy, edible food. But we aren’t helpless against the combined forces of businesses and government trying to screw us over.
Reverend Annie Chambers started a food distribution with her neighbors and husband back in March 2020 when the pandemic lockdown measures began to seriously impact the people’s access to supplies and a convenient food source.
