| Developing Equity in the Food System workshop |
Developing Equity in the Food System: Techniques and Strategies to Serve All Residents was held at Wilson College in January 2013. The program – a one-day training with a facilitator – provided organizations and businesses within the South Mountain region an opportunity to consider the issues surrounding equity and inclusion in their services and programming with specific emphasis on our region’s food system. The training was designed to provide the necessary information and guidance to ensure that underrepresented communities (socio-economic, racial, cultural, gender, etc.) are included in both voice and representation in the efforts of participating groups focused on agriculture, agritourism, and those whose recreational activities rely on the region’s agriculture. This training has helped to invigorate the South Central PA Food System Alliance (SCPA-FSA).
