Event description

Description

We would like to hear from partners with an interest in improving food security in the King's County area. While there are many innovative food programs, farmers producing healthy, local food, and other resources in our communities, many people still have problems accessing affordable and healthy foods. This event will build our understanding of barriers and opportunities to build community food security in the King's County area, and start to identify next steps for us to act together.

What should I expect at this event?

  • This will be an interactive workshop.

  • We will use community food maps to gather information about the food environment and food accessibility in the King's County area and begin to identify future opportunites for collaboration

Who Should Attend?

  • Food Services: school meal programs, food delivery programs, etc.

  • Emergency food programs: food banks, community kitchens, etc.

  • Alternative food programs: urban gardens, community gardens, etc.

  • Food producers: farmers, fishers, food manufacturers, etc.

  • Governments and Institutions: health agencies, city planners, local government, etc.

  • Food Outlets: restaurants, groceries, farmer's markets, convenience stores, etc.
