On Wednesday, February 9th at 7:00 PM, South Coast Progressive Voices (SCPV) invites you to attend “South Coast Food Revolution: What Is It? Why Does It Matter?” with Christine Smith, program manager for the Southcoast Food Policy Council (SFPC). The Food Policy Council is a coalition of food pantries, farms, foundations and social service agencies working together to promote local food security. Formed in 2011 to address food security issues in our region, the SFPC’s mission is to connect, convene and advocate for local food producers, consumers and community leaders who seek to strengthen our regional food system, improve community health and eliminate food insecurity.
Ms. Smith will present an overview of the food system in the US and take a deep dive into the food system in the Southcoast of Massachusetts. There will be opportunities for questions and discussion.
