Strengthening access to fresh, local, sustainably-grown organic food for people in need.

Partners & Sponsors

tshirtIn our short history, DCCG has developed over 70 partnerships all around DeKalb County. The past two years we have been teamed up with the Kishwaukee Health System and Kishwaukee Family YMCA as they participate in the Live Healthy DeKalb County initiative. The program is focused on helping to promote healthy behavior in our area by encouraging exercise, nutrition, and easy access to healthy activities through public policy. As addressing the problem of food deserts in our community tops our list, we are a proud participant. This partnership along with the generous donations of local businesses, concerned citizens, and grants is essential to the work we do in the community. Many thanks to all who have contributed!
