Video Storytelling

Alimentando al Pueblo is a project rooted in facilitating healing for Community that has been disproportionately impacted by the Covid -19 pandemic – impacts that have only been amplified by systemic and historical racism and economic disenfranchisement. Raices Verdes had the opportunity to capture the stories of community members that Alimentando al Pueblo serves.

Feeding the Spirit  features 3 community urban gardens and 2 community food banks led by BIPOC in King County, WA serving BIPOC in the area. Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) are disproportionately affected by food apartheid and access to green spaces, specially in urban settings. The COVID-19 pandemic has also disproportionately affected BIPOC, which has led to an increase in mutual aid and food sovereignty projects to address such disparities. Black and Indigenous people have been practicing mutual aid since time immemorial, and the mutual aid efforts in this video are an extension of this legacy. Video Production: Samara AlmonteMusic Design: Sofian MahmoudOrganizations featured in Feeding the Spirit: Danny Woo Community Garden, Yes Farm!, Young Women Empowered (Y-WE), Alimentando el Pueblo, Seattle BIPOC Organic Food Bank
