CFSC BRINGS THE SPIRIT OF FOOD JUSTICE
TO THE HOME OF CIVIL RIGHTS!

bItbs Home Grown:  Cultivating the Roots of Real Changeb


Los Angeles, CA- The Community Food Security Coalition celebrates its 9th
Annual Community Food Security Conference with a bHome Grownb theme in
Atlanta,
GA at the Westin Peachtree Plaza on October 6th thru 9th, 2005. CFSC brings
this educational and empowering event to the home of the civil rights
movement,
with the intent of bcultivating the roots of real changeb in food security
and social justice.

The 9th Annual Food Security Conference is hosted by the University of
Georgia Cooperative Extension Atlanta Urban Gardening Program in partnership
with
the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Georgia Organics, Federation of Southern
Cooperatives and Southern SAWG. This conference will present the movement with
an
effective forum to confront pressing issues in family farming, childhood
obesity
and hunger. The Atlanta location offers participants an opportunity to
experience bHome Grownb feel of Georgia and its local food traditions,
while
reflecting the full spectrum and diversity of the community food sector.

A Keynote address by Georgia Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond highlights
the event, following pre-conference short course trainings in Organic
Certification, developing and strengthening coalitions, protecting the civil
rights of
those you work with and half a dozen field trips to local farms and urban
gardens.    Some 51 interactive workshops and panels will feature speakers
from
the frontlines of the community food sector. Projected to bring together some
600 practitioners from communities throughout North America, the conference
provides an abundance of information and stimulating dialogue, grounded in
solutions to the health and community development challenges facing both urban
and
rural communities.

The Community Food Security Coalition is a North American organization of
environmental, nutrition, sustainable agriculture, community development,
gardening, anti-poverty and anti-hunger groups. CFSC seeks to develop
self-reliance
among all communities in obtaining their food and creating systems of growing,
manufacturing processing, distributing and selling food that is regionally
based and grounded in the principles of equity, health and sustainability.
