Everyone is invited to our second community board meeting, especially the folks who volunteered for positions on the board last month! If you did volunteer for a role on the board, please come with your short paragrpah "position description" to share. 2-3 sentences is fine. All others, welcome too-- we still have a few positions that need to be filled! We've got some major strategizing to do together. See you there.

A significant number of our neighbors live without ready access to fresh, healthy affordable food, putting them at risk for chronic health problems, including diabetes and obesity. Many individuals and organizations across the country are engaged in efforts to address this important issue, including the Vallejo People's Garden! Here we are doing our part at the Solano County Food Oasis giving out free and delicious samples of bruchetta, fresh produce, and wheatgrass!
