Becoming a Food Citizen: Free Master Class @ Delivered Online Via Zoom

Learn how you can help to create a healthier and more sustainable food system in this free online class, presented by Kylie Newberry, founder of Our Food System.

A food citizen is someone who shapes the food system for the better and encourages others to do the same. Taking small steps towards building and supporting a healthy, sustainable and fair system is something we can all do.

This session will outline 10 active steps you can take to become a food citizen. This includes action in the home, community and at an advocacy level. Participants will leave knowing that they are empowered food citizens with the power to transform the food system for the better.

If you are unable to attend the live class, a recording will be available to watch for three days following the session.
