The need in our city is clear, and now is the time to act. Currently, the City’s 5 year Comprehensive Plan does not include strategies for expanding food access and ending hunger, a prevalent problem. Nor have past plans included this perspective, potentially exacerbating current conditions. Partners in the Charlottesville Food Justice Network (CFJN), are here and ready to support the city in creating this new era, which we feel is urgent in order to achieve healthier schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods for all citizens no matter their race/ethnicity, nationality, gender, religion, neighborhood or zip code. We believe that we can transform our city's food system for the better.
While partners in the Charlottesville Food Justice Network believe in this cause, we need you to stand with us as well. Will you stand in support of building a food secure Charlottesville for all citizens by adding your signature below?
In the "other" option please list an organization if you would like to extend the support of a larger organizational body. (Example: Jeanette Abi-Nader, Executive of City Schoolyard Garden & Charlottesville Resident can check the resident box & add her organization to the list.)
