Growing Health Forum: Community Ownership in the Food System

February 21 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm EST

Groundswell is honored to be a sponsor of the Growing Health Forum: Community Ownership of the Food System with DC Greens! The event will be on February 21st from 9:30am – 1:30pm at the Ag Development Center on CCE-Broome’s campus in Binghamton, NY.

Creating equitable community food systems requires placing people most impacted by food injustice at the center of changes moving forward. Join several partnering orgs in NYS for a Growing Health Forum featuring a presentation by DC Greens, a food justice organization located in our nation’s capital on promoting volunteer and community leadership, transitioning programs and policies to a focus on food justice, and a discussion on programs to best engage community members.

Lunch will be provided and followed by a training led by VINES and Rural Health Network staff on promoting volunteer leadership strategies. The forum will be child friendly, and if transportation is an issue please contact Tom Lewis, at tlewis@rhnscny.org to work out a solution! The event is free but registration is required.
