Meet Food & Water Watch!

Stop by the MVCC Green Tent at the Mar Vista Farmers Market on Sunday October 16th to learn what Food and Water Watch is doing to promote local food!

Since 2006, the consumer advocacy non-profitFood and Water Watch has promoted equitable access to safe drinking water, and the return to local and sustainable food systems. Currently, the national organization is advocating for a Fair Farm Bill, which will protect small farmers ability to compete, as well as consumers’ choice in regards to healthy food. Food and Water Watch works closely with local community organizations to empower individuals to take command of their food options. Although active at the local level, the organization ultimately works toward changing the national dialogue on food issues, and the power relations within the system. Food and Water Watch is always looking to partner with local members of the community, and local community groups—join the movement and find out how Food and Water Watch benefits you!
