Example Project: Food and Community

Last quarter, Liz Schlemer (Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering) worked with a group of non-profits that have self-organized into a Food Coalition. They began asking the question, what would we need to do in order to get locally-grown food to the food insecure in a way that builds social fabric amongst neighborhoods.

The link below describes the vision of the food system.  If you are able, look at the picture by itself and follow the strands out to the descriptions of what people imagine it could be like.  Also, if you can, imagine the richness of narrative, thought, experimentation, required to bring something like this into existence.
