Media Advisory: The Fall Food Gathering Returns to Grey Bruce

On Sept 20, 2018 the 2nd Annual Grey Bruce Fall Food Gathering will be held at the Harmony Centre in downtown Owen Sound. The Fall Food Gathering is an opportunity for all food system players to connect, collaborate, share, and learn. This year’s event recognizes the intersections between food, mental health, and the environment and seeks to bring stakeholders involved in these sectors together towards improving food security in Grey Bruce.

The event has grown from last year and will build on the success from past gatherings and the United Way’s biannual Food Bank Summit. Together these events have supported efforts for a food system that provides dignified access to food for everyone. By combining efforts, the Fall Food Gathering invites a broader involvement in food system issues.

Local leaders will speak about innovative programming successes in the community and providing services that are supportive of the mental wellbeing of clients, staff, and volunteers. Program and food sector leaders, community members, and food advocates are encouraged to join in the conversation. Registration can be completed through   FFG ’18 Registration    or by contacting Barry Randall (see below) Tickets are $20 or Pay What You Can.

Members of the media are invited to the event for photos and interviews. Guest speakers will present in the morning; Breakout discussions and group activities will be held from 12:30-3:30, including a lunch hour tour of the CMHA Food Forest and Gardens. Further program details are available on the registration website and www.gbsusnet.com .
