On Saturday October 22nd, 2011, GreenStar Community Projects (GSCP) will host Ithaca's first annual Food Justice Summit to mobilize locally for food sovereignty and raise funds to support food justice projects, specifically Ithaca Community Harvest and the work of GreenStar to create a system of regional food sustainability that promotes health, equity, and community control of essential resources.
The event includes a walk-a-thon in the morning and block party celebration in the afternoon. Walk up to 5 miles around Ithaca visiting neighborhood and school gardens, then end at the bock party where the streets will be closed in the Northside neighborhood to celebrate with live music, a local organic BBQ, guest speakers, youth activities and much more. Make a donation or pledge to support GreenStar's walk-a-thon team at a GreenStar register.
