Live Well, Eat Well: Heatlhy Food Systems=Healthy Communities

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Live Well, Eat Well: Heatlhy Food Systems=Healthy Communities

Location: Holiday Inn City Centre, 100 West 8th Street

Join us for an interactive, informative afternoon focused on how we can help Sioux Falls residents Live Well and Eat Well.

This program features Sharon Thornberry, Community Food Systems Manager for the Oregon Food Bank.

While Sioux Falls enjoys a strong economy and high quality of life, the percentage of people consuming a healthy number of fruits and vegetables has declined. Limited access to nutritious foods, and relatively easier access to less nutritious foods, may be linked to poor diets and obesity, particularly in youth. Building stronger community food systems results in healthier individuals, food economies and communities.

The program is FREE, but registration is required by emailing livewell@siouxfalls.org or by calling (605) 367-8286.

 

About Sharon Thornberry: Sharon is an advocate for community food systems, rural communities and anti-hunger work. She grew up on farms in Iowa and North Carolina, was active in 4-H and Girl Scouts and was one of the first female members of Future Farmers of America.She is the creator of FEAST, the nationally-recognized community food systems organizing program.
