In the past three years, HAFA members and Bread for the City Staff & Clients have traveled to Detroit, MI for the Allied Media Conference.

Though their intentions have run the gamut from building their computer skills to connecting with the thriving urban agriculture community, each delegate has come back with something magical to offer the social justice community in DC. Read about one transformative experience here.

This year is no different. Among a small delegation of people who are going to Detroit next week, Tavia Benjamin, ...

Emergence in Our Work: Andrew Reviews HAFA http://hafadc.com/emergence-andrew-reviews-hafa/#comments Thu, 06 Jun 2013 17:03:07 +0000 Zachari J. Curtis http://hafadc.com/?p=606

Earlier this year, Andrew Willis Garces, an ally who worked with HAFA last year, wrote about his experiences as our facilitator. He published a two-part series on his blog about HAFA and the new story we are trying to tell about how to do food justice work in this city.

I learned a lot – about how to stay grounded in the actual needs of the group, how to use ecological principles as guideposts and form reflecting immediate functions as opposed to whatever structure the group ...

This year, HAFA members decided to go lean. We wanted to spend more time hearing the stories of people who do good work in the food system but who we don’t get to see very often. That’s how network gatherings were born.

Once a month, we host one of our potluck meetings with a HAFA coalition partner. At each, we welcome new people into the HAFA network with a hands-on experience of our work. We really want to hear the stories of people directly engaged in ...

This has been an exciting month for worker and food justice across the country and in DC. At this month’s DC Food Future Summit, the leaders from three worker justice campaigns presented a “Worker Justice is Food Justice” session. Erin O’Donnell, union organizer with UNITEHERE Local 23, wrote her reflections in a blog published earlier this month on the Real Food Real Jobs campaign site.

Just this past month, workers in three different parts of the food chain pushed back against a food system designed to ...

Here’s the Rundown on the Farmer’s Market that Dreaming Out Loud is organizing for DC Food Future from none other than DOL’s Executive Director, Christopher Bradshaw:

Washington, DC’s Food Future and solutions to injustice won’t be determined by a one day Summit; however the activists, youth change-makers  and the grassroots energy in attendance on Saturday December 8th will certainly play a role. The DC Food Future Summit, convened by Healthy Affordable Food for All, will bring together inner-city voices and other experts across the food system to speak as one.
