Community Food Assessment presentation
by Jules Reynolds, RARE Specialist
Tuesday, July 19th
The Healing Matrix
632 E. Main St., Cottage Grove
On July 19th, Jules Reynolds, Sustainable Cottage Grove’s RARE specialist, will summarize her year-long food system assessment of southern Willamette Valley. With financial backing from Oregon Food Bank and in collaboration with Healing Matrix, SCG secured an Americorps intern (Jules) to perform interviews and research, document what is happening (or not) in our regional food system, and identify opportunities and make recommendations to strengthen our efforts at providing equitable access to fresh local foods for all. For those that attended the June 21st presentation, you should still attend this July presentation, as Jules will cover new material and will have in-depth coverage of key areas where we can have a considerable impact locally.
Please mark your calendars now to be sure to attend in July. And please — tell a friend — and help us engage new people in our local food movement.
