Sunset Park and the Brooklyn Food Coalition

Be at the Rec Center (7th and 43rd) on Monday, September 21st at 6:30 PM if you love food.

The Brooklyn Food Coalition (born of the Brooklyn Food Conference) is having its first Sunset Park meeting this month.

According to an email from Nancy Romer, the General Coordinator, here's what it's all about:

The purpose of the meeting is to constitute a Sunset Park neighborhood branch of the Brooklyn Food Coalition which would identify and work on one, two, maybe more specific issues or campaigns related to food justice---access to healthy, sustainable food with social justice for food workers and consumers. So far there has been lots of interest in developing work around labor rights for food workers, general food access in the neighborhood, and school food. Other ideas may surface as well. The point of the group is to get neighbors together to work on a very local, neighborhood basis and then to bring those campaigns and concerns to the broader Brooklyn Food Coalition to see if actions can be spread throughout the Borough.

Thanks, it's changed now. I either flaked or took it from an earlier email. I'm betting on the former.
