Food Policy Lunch ‘n’ Learn

With more than 540,000 households spending an average of $125 per week on food, St. Louis City and County collectively comprise a $3.5 billion food economy.  Yet amid our modern lives, we tend to under-estimate its value by knowing so little about where our food comes from, how it was raised, or its impact on the people and the planet.  Let us pause to imagine that those dollars were used to support a regional network of farms and healthy retail outlets rather than to purchase fast food or fruit with high “food miles.”  Join the conversation by participating in an informal Food Policy Lunch ‘n’ Learn featuring leaders from the field working on transforming the regional food landscape through local schools, urban farms, corner stores and urban plans.
