On November 15 we installed an orchard at New Horizon School. Included in the day's activities were Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, and Christian teachings about trees and stewardship.

"The best day to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best is today."

And God planted a garden eastward in Eden

(Genesis 2:8)

Netiya is a food and faith network that cultivates gardens on unused land at faith-based institutions to grow and tithe nutritious food. Netiya fosters self-reliance and stewardship to lead Angelenos of all faiths toward greater access to food worthy of a blessing. We are a network of 42 faith-based institutions that work on hunger in LA. We believe that our institutions should source our food locally when possible. We are also deeply committed to ending food insecurity and to increasing access to healthy food in proactive and strategic ways. We believe that food is a fundamental human right. There is increasing recognition among emergency food providers of the importance of nutrition. It is no longer sufficient to merely provide calories to alleviate hunger. Just as important is providing nutrient rich foods that support adequate growth and health. But these healthier options, like fresh fruits and vegetables, are often too expensive for struggling families. In addition, many families live in “food deserts,” where markets are scarce and those that do exist sell mostly packaged, processed food. By making additional fresh produce options available across the city, we not only ease hunger but improve overall nutrition and health. By growing more food, we can tithe more food. We endeavor to build a more just and resilient food system. We believe that collaboration is the only method to make this vision a reality.
