"Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another." - Anne Raver

Monadnock Farm & Community Coalition's spring forum on improving local food access to low income populations

The Monadnock Farm and
Community Coalition
invites you to our Spring forum:
 
"Improving
Local Food
 Access to
Low Income Populations" 
 
Tuesday, April 26, 2016
9:30am - 11:30am
Heberton Hall
(next to Keene Public Library)

CHILDCARE PROVIDED
LUNCH SERVED 

 At our Spring Forum, we will deepen the dialogue and working relationships between the social services sector and the local food movement, identify barriers to healthy local food, and highlight work that is already increasing the availability of locally grown food for individuals and institutions.

We will begin our conversation with an overview of what we know: health and local food are connected; access, affordability and equity in our local food system impact health outcomes for all of us, especially our
poor communities.  

Organized by the MFCC Education Working Group (EWG).

EWG member organizations:
The Community Kitchen, Keene Housing, KSC Dietetic Internship, Community Garden Connection/Antioch Univ. New England, Cheshire HEAL, Monadnock Menus, and
Healthy Monadnock.
(so we can feed you!)
