Sunset Park Community Meeting TONIGHT! Want to improve access to good, healthy food in our community? Want to work with Sunset Park neighbors to improve our health and environment? Come to the 1st Sunset Park neighborhood meeting of the Brooklyn Food Coalition. *** Monday September 21 6:30pm Recreation Center in the Park 7th Avenue at 43rd Street *** The Brooklyn Food Coalition is a grassroots partnership of individuals and groups who strive to give an effective voice to all those who live in or serve Brooklyn and wish to achieve a just and sustainable system for healthy, tasty, and affordable food. We derive our ideas and our strength from local participation in the food movement, from people getting together in their neighborhoods to address their communities’ needs for a new food system. We want all decisions to be transparent and for decision-making to be available to everyone. Right now we have groups in 7 neighborhoods in Brooklyn and we are working toward organizing more. Thus the most important action unit will be the neighborhood groups. Each neighborhood group will send representatives to a Council of Neighborhood Organizations that will unite communities around common issues and projects, improving the food system in Brooklyn together.
Please invite your friends and neighbors. All welcome.
