Event Description

Listen to the radio interview.

Thought you’d be keen as mustard to hear about the opportunity to actively contribute to the People’s Food Plan in 2013. Working groups meet and greets will be held:

Tuesday February 5: Urban Agriculture
Tuesday February 12: Food Justice

Both meetings will start at 6pm-7:30 at the Edge, State Library of Queensland, South Bank, Brisbane.

Working groups are made up of people like you and me, helping to lay out the best course of action for building new fair, food systems. Between February and June, working groups will:

  • Research great ideas that are already happening
  • Analyse our local context
  • Make recommendations for future action

Recommendations will then be put to the wider Australian community for them to vote on which ones we should collectively throw our energies and resources behind.

To find out more, come to a no-strings attached meet and greet where hear what’s involved and hopefully be inspired by everyone’s great enthusiasm.

Please share with interested friends and networks.

Please direct all questions to Cat by email catgreen.cg@gmail.com or mobile 0410 920 899

Event Description:
Food Justice is about making fresh food accessible and affordable for everyone! Food should be about feeding people well rather than being just for profit.

Whether this is a totally new idea, or something you've been waiting to talk about for ages, come chat about food justice.

We'll chat about how to encourage a food justice agenda in SEQ with the establishment of a People's Food Plan working group.

The People's Food Plan is a set of ideas for a new fair food system. Created by ordinary Australians, we want fresh, affordable local food that looks after people and the environment.

With the launch (almost) of the People's Food Plan Working doc, working groups are the next phase of public consultation.

Working groups are helping to lay out the best course of action for building new fair, food systems.
