Mandela Partners works in partnership with community to improve health, create wealth, and build assets in low income communities.
Mandela Partners, formerly Mandela MarketPlace, is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with local residents, family farmers, and community-based businesses to improve health, create wealth, and build assets through local food enterprises in low-income communities.
Through community engagement, education, business cultivation, and financing, Mandela Partners supports and resources the development and growth of locally owned economies and sustainable food systems. Our approach is based on a systems model that addresses issues of economic disinvestment, food insecurity, and health inequity, building on local assets to cultivate thriving communities.
