5 Ways you and your Meeting can support food and climate justice

1. Support your local food system

Purchase from local regenerative farms at farmer’s markets, Community Supported Agriculture shares, and grocery stores.

2.  Learn from stewards of your local food system

Host local farmers and food agency staff at your Quaker Meeting for a “lunch and learn.” Research and attend their events to understand how your local food system operates.

3.  Advocate for policies that support small sustainable farms

Join AFSC to advocate for a just, equitable 2023 Farm Bill that invests in the people and planet by visiting afsc.org/farmbill to contact congress, sign up for advocacy webinars, and more.

4.  Be a good neighbor, be a “food neighbor”

Support community gardens, use native plants on your lawns that help pollinators, avoid the use of chemicals/pesticides at your home and meeting house, and grow edible food to share.

5.  Call for climate justice

Write to your elected officials at the local and federal level urging them to pass policies that put the welfare of our people and the planet before the profits of fossil fuel polluters.
