The Community Food Security Coalition is still planning to hold its fifth 
annual Community Food Security Conference in Washington DC from October 6th 
through 9th. Bringing people together to further the work of community 
building and community empowerment, providing healthy and fresh food for all, 
supporting small local farmers, and growing and producing food in a 
sustainable way is as powerful a need as ever. The experiences of member 
organizations like the Hartford Food System which last weekend brought 
together 500 Connecticut residents underline the importance of this and 
similar gatherings. Last weekend, the farmersí market in Washington DC was 
also opened and was overflowing with shoppers. Farm Aid is also planning to 
hold its benefit concert and earmark funds for those farmers and food-related 
organizations directly impacted by the events of September 11th. 

People need to come together and participate in these kinds of gatherings and 
places where common values and goals can be shared. Community food security 
is one small though important strategy for creating a more just, sustainable, 
and peaceful society, whether in our communities in this country or around 
the world. Moreover, our message of building food secure communities is more 
important than ever in the face of emergency planning and the possibility of 
transportation disruptions.   

Please join us in Washington DC for discussions and renewal of our message 
and goals. For more information on the conference, see our website at 
www.foodsecurity.org, or contact our office at 310-822-5410.
