The Center for Food and Justice (a project of the Urban and Environmental

Policy Institute at Occidental College) invites you to attend the "A Taste

of Justice" conference this Saturday, November 3rd. The conference will

bring together community members, food and nutrition activists and

organizations, and members of city government to strategize around food

policy in Los Angeles. The conference will focus on the following issues:

-Healthy food, gardens, and nutrition education policy in the Los Angeles

Unified School District

-Supporting existing community gardens in LA and finding ways to start more

-Bringing farmer's markets and full-service supermarkets to low-income

communities of color

-A citywide food and nutrition policy council

The conference is intended to be an example of community based policy

making. All are invited to participate. Come down and raise your voice to help

create a more fair and equitable food system in Los Angeles.

The conference is free (to ensure a lunch prepared with fresh locally-grown

produce, please pre-register).
