Emergency Urban-Rural Food ForumStart on April 14th 2021 @ 18:30. End on April 28th 2021 @ 21:00
Threats to the food system and household food security are urgent: pandemic-related economic crises such as rising food costs, poverty and homelessness, persistent systemic racism and injustice in the current dominant food system, and the ever-present perils of climate change ecocide.
You are invited to join the Eco-Just Food Network in cultivating solutions and taking action.
April 14, 21 & 28, 6:30-9:00 p.m.
Last year over 100 people from 73 organizations shared their concerns and began to collaborate on how a resilient and just food system might be achieved.
This year the Emergency Urban-Rural Food Forum will again bring together eco-farmers, activists, food workers and educators, and food organizations. The Forum's goal is to collaborate across sectors and diverse communities to help transform our failing food system. The Forum will use a human rights lens to cultivate ecological and climate resilient solutions that support healthy food sovereignty for peoples of Indigenous and African Descent, and all our relations, human and non-human.
This forum leads to action!
Out of last year's forum, the action stream created the Eco-Just Food Network, an urban-rural network to support a coalition of farmers, local food producers, co-ops and diverse communities to cultivate connections and get work done.
