Education & Advocacy

As we’re working to meet an immediate need for fresh, wholesome food, we’re also committed to collaborating with others (like community members, business leaders, and elected officials) to raise awareness of and support for longterm solutions that address wasted food, food insecurity, and the climate emergency.

Some ways we do this are:

  • Learning from our Community Advisory Board about challenges and opportunities related to food access in different parts of our service area;
  • Participating actively in coalitions working on issues like food waste reduction, hunger, and climate;
  • Presenting to school and community groups, corporate groups, and conferences;
  • Teaching people how to maximize the food they have in order to eat well and waste less;
  • Keeping our community informed of opportunities for action through our Advocacy Updates;
  • And more!
