2012 Multnomah Food Summit

Growing Food Justice: Cultivating a Shared and Broad Understanding 

Friday, June 15, 2012 from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM at the Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard, Portland, OR 97232 

The theme of the 2012 Multnomah Food Summit is "Growing Food Justice" to cultivate a shared and broad understanding of how we are all affected by and can transform an unjust food system that  contributes to chronic health conditions, hunger and food insecurity, climate change and environmental degradation, and economic injustice in our community. 

Please join us to share locally implemented solutions, experiences, and the work ahead that broaden our understanding of food justice beyond the common definition of food security and access. Our goal is to view every action pillar of the Multnomah Food Action Plan - Local Food, Healthy Eating, Social Equity, & Economic Vitality - as part of the scope of food justice.  








At the 2012 Multnomah Food Summit we will focus on cultivating a shared and broad understanding of Food Justice. Please join us in discuss and share our community's vision for a healthy, equitable and locally prosperous food system.
