Food for Thought: Building A Better Community Through Food Repeat

Tuesday, April 5, 2016 - 12:00pm


Community organizations, libraries, and publishers are uniquely positioned to engage and inform the public around food and nutrition. Hear an overview of America's eating habits and the importance of food literacy (knowing both what and how we eat,) and see how libraries are becoming community food hubs through collections, programs, library gardens, CSAs and farmers market outreach, and lending seeds and tools. Food-themed programming can also be a great way to reach new patrons—in KCLS, 18% of those attending “food” programs were first-timers. Learn how to build not just a better food community, but a better community through food.
