Through innovative, community-responsive, market-focused strategies, El Departamento de la Comida (El Depa) works to build food sovereignty, local resilience, and to improve nutrition and food access in Puerto Rico.
The Equitable Food Oriented Development case study of El Depa highlights the assets of the people and the land in Puerto Rico. It speaks to the power of connection, of relationship and of adaptability. It names both what it is and what can be through localized food systems, led by and accountable to the people they serve.
