Worcester Report Back: WFP Cuba Food Justice Delegation

When: Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Stone Soup • 4 King Street • Worcester

Come join Witness for Peace New England 
<https://www.facebook.com/WFPnewengland/> at Stone Soup 
<https://www.facebook.com/stonesoupworcester/> for a community dinner and report back from our food justice 
delegation to Cuba last month.

 From December 12-21, a mostly Boston-based group of urban farmers and 
activists of color from the Urban Farming Institute of Boston 
<https://www.facebook.com/urbanfarminginstituteboston/>, Farmers 
Collaborative <https://www.facebook.com/farmcollab/>, Healing, Empathy, 
Redemption, Oasis <https://www.facebook.com/herocenter22/>, The Food 
Project <https://www.facebook.com/thefoodproject/>, Spanish Immersion 
<https://www.facebook.com/spanish.immersion.3> and other organizations 
traveled in solidarity to Havana, Artemisa and Pinar del Río, alongside 
the Centro Memorial "Martin Luther King" 
<https://www.facebook.com/MartinLutherKing30/>, in order to learn about 
sustainable food, farming and activism.

Meet our delegates as they share photos and stories, explain useful 
practices in agroecology and community resilience, discuss 
cross-movement solidarity building, and give updates on how they have 
been incorporating lessons from Cuba into their own work for food 
sovereignty and environmental justice.

We will have art, literature and artesanía for sale to help support 
scholarships for this delegation, and will also provide information on 
an upcoming Worcester-based delegation to Cuba in June 2019! Please 
reach out to Lee at 857-636-8479 or Shahbaz A. Soofi 
<https://www.facebook.com/M.shahbazA.soofi> if you have any questions or 
are able to bring a dish for our community dinner!
