April 18th General Meeting

Georgians’ experiences with food systems are diverse and complex. For many, it's healing and meaningful, fostering resilience through farming, culture, and environmental care. It can also be painful when facing food apartheid or struggling with disordered eating. Recognizing and learning about the many intersections of food, nutrition and mental health is crucial for resilience. By fostering a compassionate space that acknowledges the diverse and sometimes conflicting relationships people have with food, we can collectively work towards a resilient future that nourishes everyone.
