Abstract

Food Lovers is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide agricultural job training to the homeless and formerly incarcerated, as well as provide access to affordable produce. This research examines the role that trust has played in the relationship between predominantly White-staffed Food Lovers and the predominantly Black residents of “Timberland Park” in Chicago. Through interviews with residents, this research explores issues related to historical disenfranchisement, the role of institutions/enforcement, and race as it relates to how trust is effectively established (or not) by community-service organizations in predominantly Black communities.
