Greater Birmingham Community Food Partners is a grassroots organization whose mission is promoting access for all community residents to a safe, culturally acceptable, nutritionally adequate diet through a sustainable food system that maximizes community self-reliance and social justice.
The goal of GBCFP is supporting the development and enhancement of sustainable, community-based strategies to improve the access of low-income households to healthy, nutritious food supplies, increasing self-reliance in providing for food needs, and promoting comprehensive responses to local food, farm, and nutrition issues.
GBCFP strives to accomplish these goals by addressing the root causes of hunger and food insecurity, and creatively pursues positive improvement by involvement in research, advocacy, education, and policy in Jefferson County.
The organization consists of community residents as well as individuals affiliated with outreach, government, and faith-community entities.

The CBCFP seems to have been gaining tremendous momemtum, epecially with the past Food Summit they put on in November, 2009. I think some really strong ideas were created to continue making the changes for a better 'sustainable' Birmingham.
