The Texas Center for Local Food is committed to upholding diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work. TXFED.org seeks to deliver enriching educational experiences and connect with an audience that reflects of our diverse Texas local food system. We believe every member of our food system deserves equal opportunity to learn and share their experience.
TCLF staff and statewide TXFED.org collaborators are honored to amplify the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and other historically underserved members of our food system.
