It's been a heavy few weeks for everyone. As the holiday season draws near, we hope you're finding time to recharge, relax, and remember that together we have made tremendous progress towards building healthier communities for our kids and families, in every sense of the word. While our context has changed, that mission and our movement continues. To that end, we're sharing resources around the two big things on everyone's mind right now: the elections and the holidays. We hope they help you navigate the weeks and months ahead, and as always please join us on the #FoodFri tweet chat and the #GoodFoodForce Facebook group for real-time conversation on the threads below and so much more. 


Gathering Post Election? We've Got Resources For You! 

This is an important time to be in community, online and otherwise. Many of us have already held meetings and know that this in-person connection is providing a much-needed sense of vision and renewed focus. Some of us are most concerned about how this moment will affect our children, others are eager to know how best to be an ally to people and groups vulnerable to attack and discrimination, and still others are ready to think of policy-based and other actions. All of these instincts are great and needed. Check out these helpful conversation resources from MomsRising.
