Sankofa Community Development Corporation

Founded in 2008, Sankofa Community Development Corporation (CDC) works with residents and other stakeholders in the Lower Ninth Ward to identify social challenges and address them through culturally-competent health-centered programming, strategic land acquisition and improvement, and community-based social enterprise.  One core program is its Mobile Market, which brings fresh, local produce—some of which is grown by students on vacant lots the CDC has transformed into learning gardens—to area residents.
