Going To Reunions? Northern CA native Taylor Behmke speaks on a panel about food justice

Join us for a discussion on Food Access & Health in the Urban Context

 

Are you on campus for Reunions?  Be sure to check out the panel Food Access & Health in the Urban Context during which health experts, food access advocates, and non‐profit leaders will discuss the phenomenon of urban food deserts—urban neighborhoods with little or no access to healthy food—and the efforts being made to create alternative food distribution systems. This event is sponsored by the Pace Center for Civic Engagement.

One of the panelists will be Taylor Behmke, a native Northern Californian and one of the founders of Food Justice Foundation.  He writes:

"Hello, I am from Healdsburg, California and I started a non-profit with some fellow undergrads called Food Justice Foundation (FJF) that works to eliminate the low accessibility of fresh produce in low-income communities.  A lot of my inspiration for this project came from growing up in the agrarian paradise that is Northern California.  The availability of quality produce and healthy eating habits that characterize Northern Californians is essentially what FJF is trying to replicate in the low income community of Trenton, NJ through the establishment and operation of large buying clubs and healthy food fundraisers at elementary schools.  It would be great to see people from the area at this panel event the Pace Center asked FJF to host"- Taylor Behmke '12, Executive Director of FJF
