MomsRising's Food Power Events Get Bigger And Better!
On August 2, 2014, we hosted Food Power 2014 in the Bronx, NY, alongside the amazing food justice community organization, The BLK Projek during their annual Not Just Talk conference. Two hundred people from around NYC came out to participate!
Highlights from the conference include the MomsRising hosted brunch and gathering of fierce food justice moms working to protect school meals, increase access to healthy food, and end junk food marketing to children.
Our discussion Food Fight! Moms on the front lines in schools and communities brought together dozens of bloggers and activists. We discussed the changes in school meals and how junk food companies are targeting children of color. We shared ways to engage moms online, and on-the-ground, to make sure kids have access to healthy food everywhere during the MomsRising workshop with Irina Gonzalez, Founder of the Latin Kitchen and Director of Audience Development at Latina Magazine, Alexandra Morbitzer, Founder of the FitLatina website and social media platforms.
We also honored members who have been on the grounds, and online, spreading the word about healthy food! Click to get to know get to know MomsRising's 2014 Food Power Awardees.
