DC Food Finder: the Webinars!

[I'm reposting this because there's another Food Finder seminar tomorrow at 11AM. RSVP with Jenny to attend.]

The DC Food Finder is a pretty simple tool, and its potential is pretty great. With Google Maps and a broad directory of food resources, we can help people find local sources of affordable food, and we can better understand the state of food access in our neighborhoods.

Along with the local Healthy Affordable Food for All (HAFA) coalition, we're working to spread the word and hear from the community how this site can help facilitate greater food access throughout Washington DC.

So HAFA is hosting half-hour Webinars to demonstrate how to use the English and Spanish versions of the Food Finder, and how to spread the word to the organizations and communities that could really use it.

We welcome all interested parties to join us on the webinar tomorrow:

Tuesday, April 21 @ 11:00 - 11:30 AM
The first half of the webinar will include a demonstration, and the second half will include instructions for how to spread the word about the Food Finder.

And, of course, we'd like to hear feedback from the community about how the Food Finder can be developed and utilized. Please share your thoughts!
