FEAST: Food Education Agriculture Solutions Together.
Please join the Dairy Creek Community Food Web in collaboration with Oregon Food Bank and the Forest Grove Senior & Community Center on Saturday, February 12th, for this important community meeting. Come make connections within Western Washington County, share your knowledge and concerns, and contribute to a plan to take action for change.
Free lunch & childcare will be available at this event (see bottom for details).
The FEAST is a way to:
Meet neighbors to plan a cohesive network for food production in the Gaston, Banks, Cornelius, and Forest Grove area.
Support our local food and agriculture economy & meet the farmers who want to feed you!
Launch new community projects and strengthen existing projects
Improve community health and nutrition
Identify local food needs, resources, and opportunities.
We will address issues such as:
Hunger and nutrition
Local agriculture and food production
Access to local, healthy, nutritious food for all income levels
Possible opportunities to discuss:
Creating a Community Kitchen where job skills can be learned, food to be prepared and shared, and workshops for adults and kids!
Bakers may experiment with locally grown and milled grains.
Restaurants gain access to good food and wines.
Support the development of a year-round Farmer's Market.
Expand the buying club & start a co-op.
Make your specialty into a mini-business.
Community FEAST is facilitated by the Sharon Thornberry, Community Resources Developer of the Oregon Food Bank.
