Lexington

Forum to discuss politics of food

Continue reading below

The local League of Women Voters chapter is holding a forum to discuss the politics of food and whether Massachusetts needs to set up a statewide food policy Friday at 9:30 a.m. at Cary Memorial Library, 1874 Massachusetts Ave. Coffee will be served at 9:15 a.m. The forum will focus on a recent grant awarded to the Metropolitan Area Planning Council to create a statewide food policy. The forum participants will discuss whether the state needs such a policy, how it would affect local farmers and farmers market, and whether it will improve the quality of food and the fairness of food distribution. Panel participants include Jim Wilson, owner of Wilson Farm; Liza Connolly, cofounder of Kids Cooking Green and a board member of the Lexington Farmers Market; Charlie Radoslovich of Rad Urban Farmers; and Lauren Yaffee, owner of Meadow Mist Farm. The free program is the fifth in the organization’s current series of First Friday Forums. Call 781-863-1733 or visit www.lwvlexington.org for more information.
