The snowpocalypse might have postponed the conversation, but hopefully everyone is using the extra time to think about the issues you believe are of high importance in ending food insecurity.
The Community Conversation, a FEAST(Food, Education, Agriculture, Solutions, Together) event is still coming to Forest Grove on Saturday, March 8, 2014, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Forest Grove Senior and Community Center. The event is co-sponsored by the Oregon Food Bank, Dairy Creek Community Food Web and the FG Senior & Community Center. Come share your ideas, concerns and solutions about our local food systems once more.
Three years ago, in February 2011, almost one hundred people attended the first FEAST and five action groups were formed:
- FEEDING HUNGRY PEOPLE,
- SUPPORTING NEW FARMERS,
- ESTABLISHING YEAR-ROUND FARM MARKETS AND COMMUNITY KITCHENS,
- DEVELOPING SCHOOL GARDENS, NUTRITION EDUCATION & FARM TO SCHOOL PROGRAMS, AND
- CREATING APPROPRIATE LAND USE POLICIES FOR FEEDING ALL OF US
The Community Conversation is a follow-up event to discuss the topics from the original FEAST, reflect on the work that has been done in those topic area since 2011 and to plan what direction to continue working in to improve Forest Grove's local food system. The event is going to be facilitated by Sharon Thornberry, Community Food Systems Manager of the Oregon Food Bank and English/Spanish translation will be available.
