"Access for All: Are farmers' markets part of the solution to closing the food gap?"

April 11, 2012 - 9:00am - 10:30am
Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods/BIOEnterprise Building
11000 Cedar Avenue Lower Level Conference Room

Please join the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Food Policy Coalition as we kick off this year's farmers' market season with a discussion on food access. The focus of this first quarterly forum will be considering the roles farmers' markets play in providing access to and promoting the consumption of fresh, healthy and local foods.

A panel of representatives from WIC, Jobs and Family Services, research institutions and local farmers' markets will weigh in from their perspectives. This event will provide a great setting for attendees to consider ways we can all work county-wide on issues related to health, equity and economics in consideration of how and where we all get our food. 


The panel will include:

Barb Riley from the Cuyahoga County Women, Infant and Children Program

Kathleen Augustine from Employment and Family Services of Cuyahoga County

Kevin Scheuring, Market Manager of Coit Road Farmers' Market (est. 1932)

Sue Flocke, Co-Director of Research at the Prevention Research Center
