We talk about the launch of The San Diego Food System Alliance Food Vision 2030 with the understanding that the time to reimagine and reconfigure our food system is now. There is no question that the current path of our food system is unsustainable and transformations must take root at the community level.
Decisions made about food have a powerful ripple effect in all aspects of society. Changing the way we grow food, move food, share food, and think about food ultimately changes the way we treat the planet and each other.
On October 22nd, Food Vision 2030 Annual Gathering will be held. Location to be determined.
We are proud to support and recommend Kitchens for Good. Kitchens for Good's mission is to break the cycles of food waste, poverty, and hunger, through innovative programs in workforce training, healthy food production, and social enterprise. The program is a tuition-free, certified culinary apprenticeship program that trains individuals with barriers to employment to launch their career in the culinary and hospitality industry. The program specifically serves individuals who are experiencing significantly high unemployment rates: formerly incarcerated adults, foster youth transitioning out of the system, survivors of domestic violence, individuals with mental health disorders, and individuals with histories of substance abuse.
