Our Kitchen Table has signed on to a Food & Water Watch campaign that calls on the Grand Rapids City commissioners and mayor to support shut down of the Line 5 oil line, which lies beneath the waters under the Mackinac Bridge. Read the Food & Water Watch fact sheet below for information. Send your own message to Governor Snyder here.
You may have visited with people from the Grand Rapids Food Co-op Initiative at the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market last fall. Here’s a brief video they have put together. For more information, visit http://www.grfoodcoop.com/.
Corporate sponsorship is also a great way to raise awareness about your business throughout the greater Grand Rapids metropolitan area.
The minimum corporate sponsorship amount is $150. Sponsorships up to $2,000 go directly to OKT. Sponsorships of $2,000 and more will be split between OKT and the general Walk fund. Commitment from sponsors must be submitted to Access no later than March 20, 2017 to secure corporate benefits. Sponsorships will be accepted after this date, but the business will not be given any benefits.
The Walk brings together more than 600 walkers, 100 congregations and others, like OKT. Donations to the walk support 20 local and international nonprofits working to create a thriving food system, a food system that provides all people access to healthy, affordable food.
OKT invites you to participate in the 40thAnnual Access Hunger Walk, May 7, 2017. This community-wide event brings together several hundred walkers to raise awareness and funds for 20 local and international non-profit organizations working to create food secure communities — including the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market.
OKT and friends, 2016 Hunger Walk
