Join us to be a part of The Visioning our Food Future Project! We will have a listening session on June 13, 2023 at 5:30 pm, in which the research and facilitation team from NC State University will ask questions and get opinions from the community regarding food sovereignty. Food will be provided. You must be 18 years or older to participate in this study. The session will be 45 mins.
The Visioning our Food Future Project is a collaboration with community members in Bladen, Columbus, and Robeson counties and the research and facilitation team from NC State University to create a food system assessment and plan for the region.
Through this process community members will identify assets and challenges and prioritize actions that will guide future food system development. Over eighteen months, community members across the three counties will provide insight, information, and goals for the local food system. The research and facilitation team will attend and host various events and opportunities to engage with the community to gather and report data and information. This team will create documents, maps, and other supporting resources that will be compiled into an assessment and plan for community members to approve.
