Food System Ethics and Practices Gathering
Brother David Andrews will be facilitating a no-cost, day-long gathering on the ethics and practices of our food system on Saturday, January 19, 2008 from 9 am to 4 pm. People whose day to day work or lives do not specifically focus on food issues but who wish to acquire a substantial understanding of food and food system issues to add to their knowledge of justice issues, will particularly benefit from the gathering. Some issues for consideration include: concentration of the food system, food production effects on the environment, global trade in food, local food system development, farm workers, and food insecurity for local people with low incomes.
Fifteen people will be invited to attend this gathering. If you would like to participate, please email Kitty Ufford-Chase at the Community Food Bank, firstname.lastname@example.org by Tues. Jan. 8, 2008, with a brief list of your food issue questions, thoughts, and experiences. For questions or more information, please email Kitty at “kitty*at*communityfoodbank.org” or call her at 622-0525, x251.
