The Center for Rural Affairs and the Center for Engagement and Community Development invite the public to attend a Community FEAST (Food, Education, Agriculture Solutions Together) workshop on November 14, from 10-2, at the South Maple Street Market in Davenport, NE.
FEAST is a community organizing process that allows participants to engage in an informed and facilitated discussion about food, education and agriculture in their community and begin to work toward solutions together to help build a healthier, more equitable and more resilient local food system.
Kathie Starkweather, Center for Rural Affairs, and David Procter, Director, Center for Engagement and Community Development, Kansas State University will facilitate the workshop.
“Looking at the food in a community is so important. Farm to School programs and more locally grown food and processing are opportunities that will allow improved access to fresh food. Identifying assets and gaps is a good way for communities to look directly at the food situation in their town and work together for solutions,” said Starkweather.
Guest speakers will present information on the current food environment in Thayer County. Attendees will identify assets as well as gaps and develop an action plan based on solutions they identify during this workshop.
Please RSVP to Kathie Starkweather, Center for Rural Affairs, at email@example.com or call (402) 617-7946. Lunch will be provided at no cost.
