Food Justice Bike Ride and Community Dinner Fundraiser | June 21st

FOOD JUSTICE BIKE RIDE AND COMMUNITY DINNER FUNDRAISER | JUNE 21ST
SECONDPOSTERWhen most people think about the food movement, what comes to mind is likely a $8 jar of artisanal sauerkraut, or a waiter getting grilled about the locality, diet, slaughter, and general happiness of a chicken. But there’s another side of the movement for a better food system — food justice movements that connect the quality and affordability of the food we eat with the living and working conditions of the farmers, farmworkers, servers, cooks, and other food system workers that we rely on to set the table.

Join us for a bike tour of sites and local organizations working for food justice in DC and beyond. The ride will start at Dupont Circle and end at Three Part Harmony Farm with an outdoor community meal. We are asking for sliding scale donations of $10 or more to support both the farm and youth organizing in solidarity with farmworkers.

MEET UP at Dupont Circle at 3:30pm, June 21st. Ride will last approximately 2 hours and end at Three Part Harmony Farm (~Michigan and 4th Ave NE) with a meal around 6pm. Yes, this is Father’s Day!
