Knowledge and Agency

Knowledge is our ability to acquire awareness, familiarity, or understanding of food (including where, how, and by whom our food is produced and distributed). Agency enables our ability to act upon that knowledge in order to enhance both our own and our community’s food security and health. Our community is strengthened and residents are empowered through the connections we make when we share and celebrate food.

Educational programs and resources provide opportunities for knowledge, skill-building, and sharing that enhance the ability of individuals and communities to become food secure. This includes knowledge, skill-building, and sharing opportunities (available to residents and to workers in the food system), and facilities (such as kitchens, gardens, meeting rooms, dining rooms, food storage, and distribution space) available for public use.
