Building Our Resilient Food System: Cultivating Connections is a free community listening and activation session that will explore the vision, progress and next steps planned for the Santa Barbara County Food Action Plan http://www.sbcfoodaction.org/ <http://www.sbcfoodaction.org/>.  We invite you to share what your neighborhood, business, or organization is doing, and connect with others engaged in making a secure food system for our county.
Community members will hear about the goals of the plan and learn about successes from the organizations and individuals actively pursuing these goals. Attendees, including individuals, businesses, schools, and organizations of all types, will also be encouraged to inform the process by sharing about their own regional work to create a more secure, sustainable food system. A networking session will provide time to seek out new partnerships and opportunities to support each other.
Event Sponsors: Community Environmental Council (CEC), Santa Barbara Foundation, Food Bank of Santa Barbara County, Santa Barbara Food Alliance, & Santa Barbara Permaculture Network

More Information:

The SANTA BARBARA COUNTY FOOD ACTION PLAN is a strategy-based community “blueprint” for an accessible, thriving, sustainable, and healthy food system. It addresses every aspect of the food system in a way that supports healthy people, a healthy economy, and a healthy environment.

What is a Food Action Plan?
A food action plan is a community-driven strategic plan that assesses how we grow, distribute, consume, and dispose of food. While each community tailors the plan to their specific needs, most share two common elements: they capture the aspirations of the community around food and farming, and they identify concrete things that can be done to improve the policies, programs, and individual actions that shape how food moves from farm to plate.

What is a Food System?
The food system encompasses how food moves from farms to tables. It includes farmers and the farmland on which food is grown, manufacturers and processors, distributors—from truckers to grocery stores to food banks—and all residents as consumers. It also incorporates the inputs needed and outputs generated at each step, including food waste. There are no defined geographical boundaries of our food system, but for the purposes of this plan, we localize the system to be Santa Barbara County.
