New England Feeding New England: Food System Resilience

June 26 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

New Canaan Library hosts a discussion by The Foodshed Forum and Connecticut Food System Alliance on New England’s potential to be more resilient against climate change and more racially and economically equitable through food. The speakers will present research from, “New England Feeding New England: A Regional Approach to Food System Resilience.”
Meg Hourigan, Coordinator of Connecticut Food System Alliance, will outline the opportunities and challenges in our regional food supply chains and employment, and the need to transition to climate-smart and adaptive food production processes that can increase food security. Also to be addressed is how to create more local, sustainable, and equitable stewardship of land and water.
Ali Ghiorse, Co-Founder of The Foodshed Forum, will provide context about the industrial food system’s dependency on practices that contribute to racial and economic injustice, diet-related disease, biodiversity loss, water pollution and depletion, soil erosion and degradation, and climate change.
Please register to attend.
