A Red Circle

Healthy Food Access

 

 
You can help us improve North County’s Food System by volunteering at our urban farm, the North County Agricultural Education Center, or our garden, the Healthy Flavor Community Garden!

 

A Red Circle formed the Good Food Movement in 2020, which is a group of Black and Indigenous urban farmers, growers, chefs, policy planners, and more, working collaboratively to improve North County’s food system!  Check out the new Good Food Movement YouTube Channel!

 

Erica Williams recently led a webinar for Missouri University Extension on Understanding and Addressing Inequalities in the Food System.  Enjoy!
