Executive Business Officer Francis Lewis stopped by the studio to talk with Tra' and Danica about the TaNefer Ankh Community 'Food Power Community Co-Op'. Francis describes it best with "food is family." Food does truly bring people and families together. When you each fresh produce grown here in Oregon, you can taste the freshness and feel good about what you are eating. Eating healthy does not have to come at such an expensive cost. They also offer many food programs and projects such as community gardening and cooking classes.
Excite your taste and eating experience with cookbooks.

The TaNefer Ankh Community Gardening Program focuses on involving Community Members in generating our own food.
Our goal is 100% community participation in producing food. With each of us knowing and understanding how our food is produced, with each of us actively engaged in the process of generating our
food we can transform our food-related conditions from one of impoverishment, disenfranchisement, food-induced-illness, and other problems, to one of food power - abundance and prosperity, healthy eating, food control.
Imagine the satisfaction and security of knowing that your food is generated by your own hands and from those you know and trust.
Through community gardening we are growing organic produce, participating with Nature (Ntru), being environmentally responsible and life-centered; We are supporting each other
