Sunday March 6 – Food Justice Event in Tucson
The Community Food Bank’s Community Food Resource Center will host a Cultivating Food Justice event on Sunday, March 6, 2011 from 2 to 4 p.m. The event will be held at the Pima Community College’s Downtown Campus at 1255 North Stone Avenue (the northwest corner of Speedway and Stone). Enter through the main doors and follow the signs to the conference room.
Join guest Robert Gottlieb, co-author of Food Justice, in a community conversation about how to begin to share the risks and benefits of where, what and how food is grown, distributed, processed, accessed and eaten. Local panelists and Professor Gottleib will share stories about transformations in the food system. Refreshments and childcare will be available at this bilingual event. The event is free and all are welcome to attend.
Cultivating Food Justice is part of the Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) initiative to prevent or reduce obesity through increased opportunities for improved nutrition and physical activity. Led by the Pima County Health Department, CPPW is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service.
