Food Security Collective

The Food Security Collective is made up of secular, humanist, and mutual aid communities all over the world responding to intolerable conditions in their own neighborhoods. Mutual aid and humanist advocates know this work is essential and stand in solidarity with organizers who bring food security to their neighborhoods, reducing local dependence on bosses, landlords, charities, religion, corporations, and the State.

Financial solidarity to the Food Security Collective will be shared evenly among the following communities:
