Community Food Security Conference: October 4-7, Seattle.

Registration is now open for the Community Food Security Coalition's 6th 
annual conference, Eating Locally, Thinking Globally scheduled for October 
4-7 in Seattle. October 4th will be the first ever national conference on 
farm to school and farm to college issues, entitled, Farm to Cafeteria: 
Healthy Farms, Healthy Students. 

Visit our website at www.foodsecurity.org for more information or to register

The CFSC Conference will attract more than 500 participants in a four-day 
series of workshops, tours and special events. The conference will be held in 
the Northwest Rooms at the Seattle Center. On Saturday, October 5th, 
attendees will join in Earth Ministry’s annual Celebration of St Francis at 
Denny Park Lutheran Church.

The four-day series of events will open with a one-day mini-conference on 
Farm-to-School programs designed to get fresh, locally grown foods into 
school cafeterias. On Saturday, October 5, conference attendees will 
participate in a series of tours of local farms, Fishermen’s Terminal, food 
banks, community gardens, and farmers markets. 

On Sunday and Monday there will be 25 workshops and training sessions on 
diverse aspects of the community food security movement. The keynote speaker 
will be Rod MacRae, the ex-director of the Toronto Food Policy Council and 
co-editor of For Hunger-proof Cities: Sustainable Urban Food Systems. MacRae 
has a PhD in sustainable food and agriculture policy from McGill University 
in Montreal. He will focus on strategies for ensuring local food security in 
the age of globalization.

Ethnobotanist Gary Paul Nabhan, author of Coming Home to Eat, will be the 
featured speaker at Earth Ministry’s Celebration of St Francis. Dr Nabhan, 
Director of the Center for Sustainable Environments at Northern Arizona 
University, will illustrate the ways to connect with local "foodsheds" to 
enhance ecological well-being and food security.
