Food Security Learning Center

The Food Security Learning Center should be designed to create and maintain a national, web-based clearinghouse of information on community food security concerns and common community problems related to the underlying causes of hunger and poverty, including the loss of farms and ranches, rural poverty,

welfare dependency, hunger, food access issues, the need for job training, and the need for self-sufficiency by individuals and communities.

The FSLC will:
operate a national information clearinghouse on innovative means, including Community Food Projects, for addressing food security and common community problems in the areas outlined above; provide information and guidance to other targeted entities on innovative programs that offer constructive, community-based or grassroots solutions to hunger, community food insecurity, and poverty; and contribute in-kind resources toward implementation of the grant.
