Food Justice Starts with Us! -- A benefit event for Clean Greens Farm & Market
Clean Greens Farm and Market is happy to announce our first annual 'Food Justice Starts with Us' Dinner Event, co-sponsored by Central Co-op, taking place on Saturday, January 29, 2011. The goal of this event is to raise funds for Clean Greens' food justice projects, as well as to raise awareness of the food access issues that our local communities face.

For our first-ever fundraising event, we will be serving a meal cooked with local, seasonal foods by members of the Clean Greens community. Clean Greens welcomes Brahm Ahmadi, co-founder of People's Grocery in Oakland, CA, who will be giving a keynote on Oakland's food justice movement. Towards the end of dinner, a short film on Clean Greens' ongoing food justice work will be premiered. After dinner, we will be having a dessert auction, and guests can enjoy their dessert while listening to a local jazz band perform.

Founded in 2007, Clean Greens is a food justice organization that is owned and operated by residents of Seattle's Central District. Our mission is to decrease the incidence of disease in our communities by increasing residents'access to healthy, pesticide-free produce at  affordable prices. We are committed to delivering clean produce to all people in our communities, which we grow on our 22-acre farm in Duvall, Washington, and distribute via our Central District farm stand and CSA program.  

We hope you will join us for dinner on January 29th, to learn more about the food justice efforts of Oakland and here at home because ultimately, Food Justice Starts with Us!
