Town Hall Focus: How to Make Good Food Available to All
Food Justice Committee
Town Hall Meeting
Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019
6757 Greene St., Mt. Airy
The Weavers Way Food Justice Committee invites everyone’s input at a Co-op-wide discussion about how to work toward making healthy food readily accessible and affordable to all. Please join us for an open and heartfelt discussion about the role the Co-op might play in leveling the playing field for everyone’s benefit.
One way the Co-op has been trying to make healthy food accessible and affordable is through the Food For All program, which was started in 2015 and currently has about 200 members. It provides a 10 percent discount for members who are on assistance (such as SNAP, TANF, WIC, SSI, SSDI, and Military Disability).
We feel that we can improve the program — for example, by increasing the discount and expanding the number of participants. How might we do this? Could Co-op members donate some of their discounts and/or hours to let others gain more? Could we offer low-cost weekly meals? We look forward to hearing your ideas. Please come and share them. RSVP to email@example.com.
Our goal is to make the Co-op a comfortable and affordable place for everyone, so we can all eat together at the Co-op “table.”
