This panel will introduce attendees to the concept of Community Food Projects. The discussion will focus on three different models from Just Food's network: an urban farm, a food pantry, and a rooftop farm. Panelists will discuss how their projects were started, what communities they serve, and what their work encompasses. Panelists will also answer questions from the audience.

Local food brings lots of benefits...but sometimes it only reaches those in the know, or those with the dough. How can we make our community food projects more accessible to everyone? Whether it's about making people feel welcome in your food community, or making sure that folks on lower incomes can afford to be part of your food projects, there are plenty of ways to open our doors to new neighbors. Join us for a interactive discussion--we want to hear your ideas, challenges, and triumphs.
