Center For Urban Transformation

The Center for Urban Transformation (CUT) in Chicago was founded to provide and apply solutions to urban problems that are informed by the principles of environmental and economic justice; ecosystem health, community health, food justice and human rights.

While much of the work of the CUT is centered in the food system where we work with urban farmers, community gardens and backyard gardeners to foster education and cultural change designed to improve the health profile of the communities we work in.

While CUT works in urban food systems we are committed  to working with suburban, rural producers and consumers  in Illinois and throughout the Midwest/Great Lakes region while also working at the national and transnational levels.
