Last week’s panel on innovation and action to change prevailing issues around food equity and access.
We were blown away by the stories of panelists Dana Rizer (FEAST), Gabby Rodriguez (HarlemGrown), Alex Godin (Lemontree), Angela Chiappara (Brooklyn Community Services), and Mohamed Attia (Street Vendor Project).
What stood out most to us is that whether you’re discussing food affordability, education, advocacy, or accessibility, everyone can connect to a food story.
These panelists shared personal anecdotes regarding the importance of family dinners; talents as burgeoning chefs; living in food deserts; and the rights of street vendors. And we feel confident saying that every guest of the event felt empowered with the tools to take a step towards change.
We’re proud to support this event and encourage you to explore the missions of these amazing organizations. What’s more, every organization from the evening’s panel is listed on DonorUP! If the Fair Food Fight is important to you, consider making a donation through the app.
