Help guide our work to transform California¹s food system

--------------------------------

We invite you to attend the California Food and Justice Coalition¹s San
Francisco Bay Area Member Meet Up on Tue. Dec. 11th, 3pm ­ 6pm, 1000
Broadway, 5th floor, Oakland. (BART Stop: 12th Street, Oakland)

This meeting is for YOU ­ our members and allies - to learn about and help
guide our coalition in its path towards becoming a more powerful political
force and creating an equitable, just and sustainable food system for all of
us.

Learn about and provide feedback on our coalition¹s new training and
mentoring program.

How can our emerging training and mentorship program best support groups like
yours?

Determine our campaign and policy priorities on a local, state and federal
level for the next two to three years.

What should we advocate for over the next two years?

This meeting is one of up to a dozen member meetings that CFJC will be
hosting around the state over the coming two months in order to answer these
two questions. This event is co-hosted by Alemany Farm, Food First,
University of California Cooperative Extension and the Eco Village Learning
Center.

The California Food and Justice Coalition is a statewide membership coalition
committed to the basic human right to healthy food while advancing social,
agricultural, environmental and economic justice. Through advocacy,
organizing and education, we collaborate with community-based efforts to
create a sustainable food supply for the residents of California. We envision
a California food system in which all activities, from farm to table, are
equitable, healthful, regenerative and community-driven.

We encourage you to contact us prior to the meeting and give us your opinion
on what our policy programs should be over the coming years. RSVP to
jessicabell [at] foodsecurity.org, 510-704-0245.
