Introducing the DC Food For All

Last week, we helped launch a new collaborative project -- along with friends at the Capital Area Food Bank, DC Hunger Solutions, DC Central Kitchen, Social Compact, the Common Good City Farm, the Washington Urban Gardeners, and more.

The DC Food For All will chronicle the many efforts here in Washington DC to expand access to -- and demand for, and production of -- fresh, nutritious food. We hope it becomes a forum for the discussion of all things food, and that together we can make great progress towards a more equitable community food infrastructure.

Already in the first week, Bread for the City staffers have contributed a couple of great posts: one from Jeffrey Wankel about the Glean for the City project, and another from our Emerson Hunger Fellow Amy Johnson, about analyzing the feedback from our clients about changes in our food pantry. (Stay tuned for that to be posted here.)

You'll hear a lot more from us about this project. In the meantime, you can subscribe to the DC Food For All's RSS feed here, and you can follow it on Twitter and fan it on Facebook. And if you'd like to participate in the conversation among DC Food For All contributors about the direction this project will take, request to join the google group here. Stay tuned!
