California Higher Education Food Summit at UCSB: Jan 16 – 18

To Brennies interested in sustainable food systems:

[From the Summit website]
Join a convergence of students, staff, faculty, and community leaders at large to bridge the conversation of food access, security, and justice within California Colleges and local community environments at the California Higher Education Food Summit.

The three day summit will include workshops, speakers, and activities of all levels for individuals to engage with critical issues while building skills and relationships to implement change on college campuses and in the surrounding communities. The conference will include dynamic keynotes panels and workshops across three tracks of Community Engagement, Activism and Policy, and Education & Research.

There are a number of other activities planned throughout the weekend, including a screening of Occupy the Farma documentary which tells the story of a group of food justice advocates fighting to save community farms from development by real estate agencies. Visit their website to view the schedule and learn about the invited speakers and planned workshops.
