DCFAC Harvest Workshop: Become an Advocate

Join the Denver Community Food Access Council (DCFAC) for a 3-part bilingual artistic workshop on Food Justice and how to get involved in advocacy. Hunger exists and we can change that, in Colorado, there is no lack of food, but rather programs and services need to be redesigned to meet the needs and wants of our communities.

When we collaborate together and share our story we can make an impact on local, state, and or federal policy.

These workshops will be great if you have been wanting to do advocacy but do not know-how. You should join if you:

    • If you are zoomed out and want to relax, enjoy, create art while learning and having conversations about food and community activation
    • If you have lived experience with Hunger and would like to inform and help shape an equitable local food system
    • If you have experienced hunger in the past
    • If you believe every Denver-area family should have the nutritious food they need to be healthy and thrive.

Share and learn from each other why food is important, learn how your collective voice can effect change, brainstorm with other community leaders on community-driven solutions to change the local food system and enjoy poetry, rapping and dance performances in each session!

Workshops will be from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm (you can attend all or just one):
