Food Policy Panel A Success!

On Wednesday afternoon, Public Health Coalition Member groups YHHAP and Yale Sustainable Food Project helped put together a panel about the intersection of Food Policy, Sustainable Agriculture and Public Health in New Haven. The Panel featured Anastatia Curley, Communications Coordinator for the Yale Sustainable Food Project and Diana Richter, Executive Director of the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen and member of the New Haven Food Policy Council. The event was a lively discussion about eating locally and organically in tough times, the challenges of feeding large numbers of financially unstable familes, and possibilities for changing our nation’s food system.

Both the Yale Sustainable Food Project and the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen are always looking for volunteers for a variety of projects. You can learn more about these organizations at the following websites:
