Savor the Summer Benefit Dinner this Saturday (8/29)!

Here's a cool event happening this weekend...come out and support a great organization with a new campaign!

On Saturday, August 29th, the California Food and Justice Coalition is pleased to partner with Bocanova restaurant for Savor Summer with CFJC, a dinner featuring local, organic ingredients and a talk by Laura Stec, chef and author of Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming. All proceeds from the dinner benefit CFJC's newest campaign, Grow Local, focused on rebuilding local food systems. We hope you can join us. To reserve a seat, please visit

Here's some more info about CFJC:
The California Food and Justice Coalition (CFJC) promotes the basic human right to healthy food while advancing social, agricultural, environmental and economic justice. Through advocacy, organizing and education, we collaborate with community-based efforts to create a sustainable food supply for the residents of California. We envision a California food system in which all activities, from farm to table, are equitable, healthful, regenerative and community-driven. The Grow Local campaign works to rebuild local, sustainable food systems by empowering the grassroots to push for local-level policy change. We find that the benefits associated with local food systems are immense: strengthened local economies, improved access to healthy foods, reduced green house gas emissions, and increased access to green-collar jobs. Plus, as you will witness at the dinner, local, organic food just tastes better.
