New Yorkers concerned about food inequality, food justice, and healthy eating are gathering this weekend in Brooklyn at the annual Brooklyn Food Conference. The event is free and open to the public!
According to Eryka Peskin at our sister site, Ecolocalizer:
The Brooklyn Food Coalition, an organization that was created after the 2009 conference is spearheading this years conference. This grassroots organization tackles food issues and sustainability to achieve their vision of a more just and sustainable food system in Brooklyn. On May 12th, they’re taking over Brooklyn Technical High School and getting ready for a second round of transforming minds and local food policy, and ultimately the entire nation.
