CPHA has written extensively about the issue of food deserts and food insecurity in the abstract, and it’s clear that universal access to quality produce and other fresh food is a fundamental measure of social equality. If you want to make the case for the importance of food security and healthy local foods in your community, an upcoming webinar presented by PolicyLink and the Food and Agriculture Policy Collaborative will help you do just that. This webinar will feature experts in public policy, community development and food and agriculture with information on how getting healthy, local food to areas that have a lack of it is a fundamental concern in the strengthening of communities.
Speakers at Healthy Food, Healthy Economies include PolicyLink president Judith Bell, Senior Policy Advisor at the Reinvestment Fund Patricia L. Smith, Jim Weill of the Food Research and Action Center, and more.
“Healthy Food, Healthy Economies” will be held:
