-Mark Brand, Founder
ABLF USA creates radical spaces of inclusion. Our four initiatives unite people in the kitchen or at the table to increase community wellbeing. If one of US is unwell, we're all unwell.
Food is our last best hope to connect and build
with our neighbours.
By raising critical funds, educating and convening change-makers at our events, we help create a better life for those who need it most with our unique, community-forward programming.
From June to July of 2019, in partnership with Fairshar, we e launched a nationwide tour to convene policy and change makers.
We're all about radical hospitality; whether it's gathering policy and change makers to share a meal or creating physical spaces of inclusion at our (pre-COVID-19) Plenty of Plates events.
We connect people to help combat isolation and heal communities. We connect with local
non-profits to execute community programs that decrease isolation and increase food security.
