Seattle area p-patchers and food banks — a conversation

SGGN recently learned of an event at Solid Ground. Charlene Hsia said:
“I work as a Food System Support Program Assistant at Solid Ground, supporting the work of Seattle food banks. Our Seattle Food Committee is meeting with local growers on December 12th, 2017 from 2PM – 5PM, at Solid Ground. 1501 North 45th Street.
We want to partner to increase farm to food bank work in and around the city of Seattle. Come to discuss new partnerships and sourcing opportunities, and other avenues for collaboration. This conversation will inform a larger farm to food bank conference, tentatively scheduled for February 2018.
I believe Giving Garden Leads from the P Patch Community Gardens would benefit from participating in this conversation, and would provide strong insight into the farm to food bank work needed in the region. Click here to tell us you’re coming. ”
