Vallejo Sister Cities Association, Ilera Ile Healthy Soil and the California Black Agriculture Working Group brings Northern California groups together on 2018 Africa Day.

Winter 2018, our Farm to Fork Friday monthly series began with a regional idea to strengthen local food systems while sharing an idea to expand online CalFresh Redemption targeting food insecure census tracts throughout California with CSA boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables.

We continue to build and expand our both/and approach toward strengthening California Pan African Trade and Commerce while expanding local job creation with career opportunity by building stronger local food systems.

Beginning in 1845 with the "African Founding Father of California," Honorable William Alexander Leidesdorff, Jr., the Bay Area continues to host the largest diplomatic community in the United Stated after Washington D.C. and New York. There are over 70 consulates with full-time officials and honorary consulates in the region.

25 years ago the Vallejo/Bagamoyo Sister City began sharing an ancient past, current reality and amazing future opportunity by expanding mutually beneficial international business with cultural exchange.

Former Republic of Tanzania Foreign Affairs Minister and over a decaf later returning as President Dr. Jakada Kikwete shared high cultured value and purpose of nurturing good long term relationships.

Farm to Fork Friday, A Taste of Africa will honor the legacy of 2018 Africa Day while showcasing the blessings of a new inclusive legacy throughout Solano County breaking bread, anchored by locally produced fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables.
