Description

Please join LiveWell Colorado on Tuesday, October 8, at The Hangar at Stanley Marketplace, for our second annual Taste & Talk fundraising breakfast.

Colorado’s food system and transportation infrastructure have enormous implications on our residents, our health, and our economy. LiveWell Colorado works with hundreds of partners across the state to advance healthy eating and active living in low-income communities and among communities of color, who often face the greatest health disparities. LiveWell’s programs work to promote healthy local food systems as well as advance infrastructure for safe and accessible walking, biking, and public transit. Our success requires a multi-sector approach inclusive of the interests, expertise, and perspectives of the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

Our second annual Taste and Talk breakfast will bring together some of Colorado’s most knowledgeable experts on the Colorado food systems and active transportation opportunities. This innovative event offers participants an opportunity to learn, share, and collaborate around some of the most fundamental expectations we have of our state and its success. In addition to hearing comments from thoughtful keynote speakers, participants will self-select up to three topics that most interest them and engage in expert-facilitated table conversations throughout the event. This exclusive opportunity provides participants access to ask questions and participate in a dialogue with the best in the field from nonprofit organizations, businesses/industries, and government agencies. Instead of listening, attendees can directly participate in the conversation. In addition, they will be treated to a homeade breakfast by our catering partner SAME Café, a donation-based, fair exchange restaurant with a mission to create community through healthy food access by serving healthy food to everyone.

Funds raised at this event will support LiveWell’s efforts to increase access to healthy eating and active living by removing barriers that inequitably and disproportionately affect low-income communities and people of color across the state, as well as activate partnerships for all attending to make a difference in Colorado that matters.

What last year's participants had to say:

“Loved the format – terrific networking/collaboration opportunities with great food while building awareness and new knowledge. Thank you.”

“I really applaud LiveWell’s creativity in rethinking fundraising/engagement and experimenting with an event that focuses on content and substance, as well as social engagement and awareness building.”

“Very impressive room of people working to change our world!”

“This was a wonderful way to learn about LiveWell Colorado initiatives and hear how they impact the community. Thank you!”
