Featured at FoodTank, the food think tank

Added on by Erin White.

Community Food Lab was featured recently on the excellent blog of the Food Tank, an organization built around the need to fix our broken food systems. Their passion and energy come through all the work they do, and we are excited to get our name out there on such a great site!

As much as we need new THINKING on global food system issues, we also need new DOING. Around the world, there are examples of people and organizations that have developed innovative, on-the-ground solutions to the most pressing issues in food and agriculture. Through years of field visits (and years of trying to eat better in our own communities), Food Tank will continue to highlight and promote the best practices.

our kickstarter needs you!

Added on by Erin White.

We are getting our kickstarter on, raising money to produce a booklet series on local food, and we need your support! (plus, you'll love our video)

OPEN FOOD is a series of single topic booklets that introduce, explain and share various parts of local food systems. Our goal for the OPEN FOOD booklet series is to build participation in the food system.  We are designing these booklets to spark conversations about local food systems with information and graphics that are easy to share. All the details at our kickstarter page.


An earlier blog post on the project tells it this way: "Because urban agriculture is a frequently misunderstood yet rapidly growing phenomenon with immense benefits, our design team is currently working on a booklet series meant to inform readers about urban agriculture and local food."

Take a moment to explore our campaign! Hope you love it, share it, and decide to become a backer. We'd love to have you on board!
