About: Communities in Partnership cultivates grassroots leadership and builds community resilience through collective action and transformational organizing. The organization’s mission is to organize and develop local community members with a focus on long-term residents, especially low-income minority residents.
2016-17 DGIN funding helped obtain the start-up food needed in support of Communities in Partnership’s pilot food co-op in East Durham. It also helped with the cost of shelving and refrigerated systems to maintain food at the right temperature.
