Field to Fork: Sustainable Feed, Sustainable Food

October 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Clean Water Action for an introduction on their new campaign Field to Fork: Sustainable Feed, Sustainable Food. Field to Fork aims to reshape our highly industrialized food system currently dominated by corporate agriculture, specifically in relation to livestock production. In collaboration with partners and interested individuals across the state, we hope to implement policies within supply chains that reflect sustainable practices to protect our natural resources. We’ll work towards two major changes, changing the market and changing policy, to achieve sustainable meat. Join us to learn more about these changes, our campaign initiatives, and actions individuals of the community can take to help propel these changes.

This class is free but donations are accepted. To save your space, email andrea.e@tinydiner.com. RSVPs are strongly encouraged!
