This year the Fair is combined with the Latinos Multicultural Festival for even more fun!
Enjoy LOTS of family activities including an Anarchy Zone run by the Ithaca Children’s Garden in the BJM playground, games and contests with fruit and vegetable prizes, chicken petting, youth cooking demo and free food - delicious seasoned roasted veggies! Hear from local speakers - including Groundswell's Director, Joanna Green - talking about the great work going on in this community. The Latinos Multicultural Festival will offer live music, a DJ contest, children’s craft area and food vendors.
WHAT IS FOOD JUSTICE?
GreenStar Community Projects defines Food Justice as...
- Elimination of disparities in healthy food access and nutrition education
- Transformation of our food system, leading to comprehensive local healthy food distribution
- Support for allied movements for social justice and environmental stewardship.
Mark your calendars and join us for this great community event. Get some family fun while supporting the growing movement to take local control of the food we eat, how it is grown and processed, and who has access to it.
