Monday May 11, 6 to 8 p.m.
Garfield Lodge, 334 Burton St. SE 49507 

Have you heard the term “food justice” and wondered just exactly what that meant? This two-hour introduction to the concept introduces you to the causes of food injustice, how the agri-business industry works against it and proposes actions we can take to make healthy food accessible to all.

Please join OKT food garden coaches, Camilla Voelker and Jeff Smith for this interesting conversation. Knowledge is power!

You might also want to check out OKT’s Food Justice Series. To date, OKT has created eight of these brief introductions to different food justice topics. You can view and download them here for free. And please, feel free to print and post wherever you think the message could be relevant.

  1. As you may know, Monsanto is pushing a federal bill that would pre-empt GMO labeling at the state level.

    This bill is picking up steam and starting to move through Congress.

    We are trying to stop it dead in it’s tracks. Several groups are putting together this sign on letter to urge legislators to oppose this bill: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1vZ0UU4oMQjlgEGDrumqPIoe7DyFlYQpF_IbuCRnVY0k/viewform

    Would you be able to sign your group on, and can you help circulate this letter to any other groups or businesses you work closely with to urge them to add their name to it? We are closing out the sign on letter on Monday at 5 pm.

    Thanks so much!
