Next Wednesday, Nov.

Fourth Generation, a program of The Minneapolis Foundation

Next Wednesday, Nov. 16, join Fourth Generation as we learn more about our philanthropic cause for the new program year!

Minneapolis Nutrition and Food Justice 101 will provide attendees with an overview of local issues and initiatives surrounding nutrition and food justice.

“Food justice” is the notion that every community has a responsibility to ensure that the benefits and risks of where, what and how food is grown, produced, transported, distributed, accessed and eaten are shared fairly.

Our guest speaker will be Megan O’Hara, former chair of Homegrown Minneapolis, an organization working to create a local, healthy, and sustainable food supply that will positively impact the city and region’s economy, health, food security and natural environment.

Learn about current initiatives to expand the Twin Cities’ ability to grow, process, distribute, eat and compost more healthy, sustainable, locally grown foods.
