Homegrown Minneapolis Initiative
Apr 20 2023
Food insecurity can affect anyone but it disproportionally affects individuals and communities that hold marginalized identities. This presentation will examine food access inequities and how Homegrown Minneapolis has been working to facilitate conversations and coordinate action around building a healthy, equitable, and local food system.
Q&A starts at the 19:30 mark.
