In honor of UN Food and Agriculture Organization’s World Food Day on Friday, October 16 Map the Philippines, Amy Besa’s Ang Sariling Atin and Purple Yam Malate and De La Salle Saint Benilde invite food community members to an informal gathering to discuss and share ideas to create more sustainable and inclusive food infrastructure in the Philippines.
Our goals for the meeting are to:
1. Create a network of food community members from farming, education, government, business NGO and community groups.
2. Outline community needs such as farm to market roads, marketplaces, training programs, funding and other funding needs to support our local food economy.
3. Visualize the network and needs on a map to identify funding opportunities and areas for collaboration across government, business and NGO sectors.
Light snacks will be served, please feel free to bring a platter and showcase your local food products at our community table.
