I would like to invite you to an evening of conversation and connection as we continue our work in food systems and nutrition in Tioga County.
Moving forward from Senator Gillibrand’s exciting visit to Tiger Farm, and the many successes of the Seed to Supper program throughout Tioga County, we at Cornell Cooperative Extension want to continue the good work around improving the food system in our community. We want to hold a community conversation in order to get people talking about food, and bring everyone together who is working to improve lives through nutrition in Tioga.
What: FEAST is a gathering around a meal where community members talks about their food resources and the opportunities that they see to strengthen their community’s food system. There will be questions for prompting conversation and thoughtful consideration provided by our Seed to Supper interns – we’re hoping this can bring together people and ideas from around the county to improve our efforts everywhere. The Cornell interns are trained in facilitation and I have seen firsthand how powerful these face to face workshops can be, and I would like to bring this type of synergy to Tioga County.
This event will be a rain or shine potluck, so feel free to bring on of your favorite dishes or snacks!
Why: To deepen the connection of local programs and people working on food issues and the food system of Tioga County. The more we know about each other and the programs we provide, the better the delivery of needed services to the residents of Tioga County.
Where:The pavilion between Long Meadow Apartments and Countryside Community Center of Tioga Opportunities on 9 Sheldon Guile Blvd in Owego, by the community gardens. In the event of rain, the event will be held in the CCE Conference Room downstairs at 56 Main Street in Owego.
When: Monday, July 17th from 6 pm to 8 pm
Who: Open to all community members interested and invested in the health of our community food system. This is an open invitation to all, so feel free to share this invitation to your network. The greater the diversity of “voices,” the richer the product.
