"The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. You open your hand, satisfying the desire of every living thing.” Psalm 145:15-16 God has created a world capable of producing abundant food and human beings capable of organizing to ensure no one is hungry. To help us better analyze and organize our witness, you are invited to a webinar (analysis) and follow-up GoToMeeting (organizing our own faithful witness).
You are invited to participate in an on-line screening and facilitated discussion of "Fair Food: Field to Table," a multimedia presentation promoting a more socially just food system in the United States. The webinar will take place on March 8 at 10:00-11:30 AM PST (1:00-2:30 PM Eastern Standard Time). The webinar is hosted by the Food Trade Sustainability Leadership Association (FTSLA) and will be moderated by Ron Strochlic, Food Systems Consultant and former Executive Director of the California Institute for Rural Studies. Featured speakers include Gerardo Reyes, Coalition of Immokalee Workers; Tim Schultz, Lundberg Family Farms; Richard Mandelbaum, Agricultural Justice Project, Domestic Fair Trade Association and Farmworker Support Committee, and Maisie Greenwalt, Bon Appetit Management Company. Please join us for what promises to be a lively and informative discussion about promoting a more just food system in the US.
