Engagement with community is a process that takes many forms. Community Food Lab looks continually for ways to build new partnerships, listen to new voices, connect to new intelligence, and empower individuals.

Honest engagement  involves respect for others and value in everyone's ideas. It makes the argument that by gathering the perspectives of those who will be affected by a decision, solutions are found that all can share ownership of and find satisfaction in.

Community Food Lab comes to engagement with an open mind, knowing that though we call ourselves experts we have much to learn, and knowing that if we can foster open conversation we are on the right track.
