Kalamazoo, MI– Good Food Kalamazoo, a coalition of food and hunger organizations, is hosting the Good Food Roundtable on Tuesday, November 12, 11:45am-1pm at Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes (901 Portage Street). The Roundtable will bring a diverse group of community members together to discuss ways to empower the Kalamazoo community to provide itself with food that is healthy, green, fair, and affordable. This event is free and open to the public.
Representatives from KVCC’s Healthy Living Campus and Kelly Clarke from the Kalamazoo County Land Bank will each give a 10 minute presentation. A robust conversation among attendees about the topics raised will follow. All are encouraged to bring a bag lunch.
Good Food Kalamazoo is a coalition of community members from Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes, People’s Food Co-op, Fair Food Matters, Michigan Food Policy Council, Michigan Farmers Market Association, and Michigan Land Trustees. Drawing on the statewide efforts of the Michigan Good Food Charter, the coalition has been exploring for the past two years how to localize our food system and make it more sustainable. The Roundtable conversations seek to develop a broader community awareness of the needs and opportunities involved in doing so.
