Help us continue to shape a sustainable food future for Santa Barbara County! Join us for the third annual free community listening and activation session for the Santa Barbara County Food Action Plan. We will share how we’re transforming into a network and explore the vision and next steps for building a resilient food system.
Attended last year by over 100 representatives from businesses, schools, neighborhoods, and organizations of all types!
The event is being organized by the Community Environmental Council, the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, and the the Santa Barbara Foundation. Co-sponsors are Santa Barbara Food Alliance and the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network.
The Santa Barbara County Food Action Plan is a community-driven strategic plan that assesses and provides recommendations for how we grow, distribute, consume, and dispose of food. The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County and the Community Environmental Council spearheaded the project, with major support from the Santa Barbara Foundation. Community gatherings are an essential component of the Food Action Plan, which is designed to create a more resilient food system that supports a healthy economy, healthy people, and a healthy environment.
