Announcing: Food System Stories

Updated: Oct 12, 2021


The GCRFPC is launching a community-driven storytelling project about experiences in our regional food system, called Food System Stories.


Starting with the Community Advisory Board of our Community Voices in Food Movement project, we are capturing videos, images, and words to spotlight what residents of our neighborhoods do to feed themselves and their families.


Food System Stories will be used to facilitate discussion about systems change in our Community Voices meetings and in conversations with decision makers in partner organizations.


Other organizations in food access work, like Feeding America, Tufts University, and the Fair Food Network, have collected narratives in similar ways to help community members share their experiences, and we are excited to help our Community Advisory Board tell their stories in this way.

This work is supported by APHA, a membership association that champions the health of all people and all communities, with support from the Aetna Foundation, an independent, charitable, philanthropic affiliate of CVS Health. The views presented here are those of the author and not necessarily those of the American Public Health Association or the Aetna Foundation, its directors, officers, or staff. Any modification of this language is not permitted without prior authorization from APHA.

🎤 If you have a story to tell, get in touch with us through our Food Systems Analyst, Maddie, at maddie@greenumbrella.org.
