Tuesday: Arise event on taking control of our food supply

Next Tuesday, September 24, The Arise Free School and Green Committees will be hosting a discussion with food issue expert and national agricultural journalist Zachary Lyons of Seattle's Chef's Collaborative at 7 pm. at Christ Church Cathedral, 35 Chestnut St., Springfield. Joining him will be Jessica Collins from Live Well Springfield and members from the urban youth agriculture project Garden the Community.

At issue: What if we could make sure that everyone in our community had access to healthful, delicious, low-cost food to nourish us now and into the future?

The event is sponsored by Arise for Social Justice, Live Well Springfield - Partners for a Healthier Community, Out Now and QuEST, the Pioneer Valley Sustainability Network and the Sisters of St. Joseph's SEED Program.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call Arise at (413) 734-4948 or (413)
