OEDC Creatives Collective

 OEDC Creatives Collective

The goal of the OEDC Creatives Collective is to increase the food security of the residents in our community through education and advocacy that is focused on food, equity, stability, and the arts. The Creatives Collective is born out of a planning initiative through the Kresge Foundation’s Fresh, Local & Equitable Initiative.
