The Sunny South Dallas Food Park is a community-driven initiative that seeks to create economic mobility and opportunity for South Dallas. We are an urban planning and business incubator that provides a safe space for Black-owned businesses to thrive. By building community equity, we are committed to investing in generational wealth for the South Dallas community. Your donation helps us further our mission of developing sustainable and equitable solutions for the South Dallas community.

Moving forward anything related to the Sunny South Dallas Food Park will be cross promoted and represented by the nonprofit organization, Prolific PL4CES, and future information will be listed on their website.

Thank you for your support!

VENDOR PROCESS

For our December food park we will be running the vendor process a little different! Instead of opening up a call for vendors we will be creating a CURATED selection of vendors (new and returning) that connect to the overall vision and plan of where the food park is headed. This is in no way to discredit any business we've worked with or that's been a part of previous food parks but as we begin our journey towards securing a permanent location we are dedicating more time and effort to building with people that understand and recognize what we're doing.

Emails will be sent to the selected vendors with further instructions and details of what's required, vendor fee, and any supporting information we may need. Keeping it simple yet focusing on curating a true community-led space that supports growth, networking, and building sustainable Black-owned businesses.

Ultimately, our goal is and continues to be to create a permanent space to house elements of the food park that is accessible to the South Dallas community on a regular basis. This space consists of healthy food options, food trucks/trailers on occasion, spaces for businesses to office at in South Dallas, curating a safe communal space for growing entrepreneurs, and developing a community operated grocer!

 

Thank you for supporting all that we've done in the last 2.5 years - we certainly wouldn't be able to do this work without you! 

SPONSOR OPPORTUNITY!

In the true fashion of community we want to encourage a space of collective economics in South Dallas! Our goal is to grow, empower, connect, and coordinate more Black owned businesses and other minority owned businesses in a space that encourages them to GROW! This is also in efforts to fund Black and other minority owned businesses, find capital resources, and carve a permanent space for their businesses to THRIVE!

The Sunny South Dallas Food Park is an extension of an urban planning model for community placemaking of spaces and places particularly in communities of color. It's a for-profit space that encourages generational wealth through Black empowerment, entrepreneurship, collective economics, resources, and incubation for the sustainability of Black owned business development. Our model is a mixture of urban planning, tactical urbanism design, third place ideals, and the incubator space inspired by the late great Nipsey Hussle's Vector90 project in LA. We're on the road to finding a PERMANENT home in South Dallas with permanent, sustainable, and effective resources for businesses and residents alike in South Dallas.

We look forward to bringing sponsors into the family that is the food park that allows mutual benefit for businesses and organizations to understand what we do/who we are while also bridging a relationship that fosters trust and intention with the community of South Dallas! We look forward to building a relationship with you/your business!
