At a time of rising levels of hunger, food insecurity, and nutrition-related health problems such as obesity and diabetes, many leaders are pointing to the benefits of eating fresh and locally produced food. But not all communities have good access to fresh food, and many low-income families cannot afford to buy fresh and organically grown food. "Toward Food Security For All" brings together a panel of experts – farmers, nutritionists, food policy advocates and activists – to highlight some of the urgent food security challenges in our community and creative and effective ways to address them.
We hope that you can join us on November 17th. We will begin the evening with a simple meal of homemade soup, bread and cider. So please join us promptly at 6:30. The event is open to the public and has a $5 suggested donation which will support future food access programs at the farm. While pre-registration is not required, we encourage you to RSVP by emailing usso that we can have a rough estimate of the number of participants.
