Highlights of the 3rd Annual Local Foods Celebration sponsored by St Joseph's Catholic Church. I couldn't make the craft beer social (booo 😢) but had a grand time with old friends and new at the dinner. The dinner was the culmination of a multi-day event. This is love in action.

How is it #MORETHANFOOD? "When Spring is approaching here in Georgia, I think about what I’d like to plant in our little backyard garden. My daughter will soon be 3 and I know she’ll enjoy helping to water the plants and pick our harvest. I won’t think twice about turning on the spigot and feeling the spray of the cold water from the garden hose. She will laugh and try to spray me and turn to dance in the cold water. We’ll probably plant some tomatoes. She will especially enjoy going out every day to pick a handful of cherry tomatoes to pop into her mouth. There will be nothing special about it, other than the simple joy of growing something ourselves.

But I know that under the same summer sun, my friends on the other side of the world will be giving thanks for the nourishment and the vitamins provided by these greenhouse crops. They’ll deliver baskets of fresh produce down to the SERV store at the edge of the HOH property and local families will walk across sand and broken pavement to buy and bring home a small portion of that fresh food. And at the dining tables, the HOH kids will bow their heads to say asante to God for this delicious bounty." It is nourishment. It is outreach into the community.

What does the Canada-US trade war mean for the cost of groceries? It's very likely the cost of California-grown strawberries and Florida-grown oranges, not to mention other fruits and vegetables will shoot up, even as the Canadian dollar sinks against its U.S. counterpart.

THIS JUST IN! Governor just signed Senate Bill 946, the Safe Sidewalk Vending Act. THE BILL HAS OFFICIALLY PASSED 🎉 This historic legislation ends criminalization of sidewalk vending and brings thousands of entrepreneurs into California’s economy, impacting thousands of street vendors across the state. This bill is an incredible step forward for protecting immigrant and low-income entrepreneurs and #goodfoodforall
Thank you for signing this momentum bill, Governor Brown! And thank you for your leadership @senrlara!

Part 1: Right now, my biggest weakness environmentally is packaging. Probably 80% of everything I buy comes packaged. Things like almond milk, juice, often times produce, snacks and bars, toothpaste, soap, the list continues.
.
All of this can be avoided and often times the ways to avoid them are better for your health and economy anyways. A lot of solutions to packaging revolve around buying locally made things, going into a farmers market, a local bakery, these environments make it way more natural and easy to bring your own bags, containers, etc.
.
Easy for me to say, what about those struggling financially, dealing with discrimination, or are in low income areas where the closest “grocery store” is dollar general or seven eleven?
.
Things that could help solve this are access to affordable/free and fresh food, transition programs, and a shit ton of employment opportunities that drive a sustainable world.

Did you know that carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene, and contain high amount of fiber? Beta carotene is important for eyesight, skin health, and normal growth.
Carrots are also a good source of fiber, vitamin C and potassium, as well as vitamin B6, folate, and several minerals including calcium and magnesium. We will have plenty of these beautiful carrots every Friday 10 AM - PM

If you have managed to weed through the confusion of the American Food System and have found a diet that works for you -- Congratu-freakin-lations! With so much buzz and so much contradicting information, this is no easy feat.
.
If you've had the privilege to consciously choose the foods which you eat (and don't eat), you are waaaay ahead of the game compared to so many others. If you’ve had the luxury to stop and analyze if dairy, gluten, or grains upset you — you are most certainly #privileged.
.
So, how are we working to make food more equatable and accessible to those who don’t have the same privilege? How do we increase access to health and wellness through diet in low income communities? How do we empower community members to take charge of their health through nutrition? How do we bring #nutrientdense #foods closer to those who are desperate need of #healing? These are the questions we #wrestle with as #missiondriven food business.

How is it #MORETHANFOOD?

Lucy was only 4 years old when she was brought into House of Hope. She was the youngest of 5 siblings who's parents died of HIV/AIDS. The only way they would get food or water was by making charcoal to trade. Many days, they wouldn't eat.
When Lucy was rescued and brought to House of Hope, she never smiled. Until one day when they put her on the swing at the playground at House of Hope. Her face lit up and she has continued to shine her joy as she is now thriving at House of Hope.
It is more than food. It is the joy in the faces of children.
