WESPAC Community Self Reliance

On Thursday evening, February 25th, WESPAC’s Food Justice committee hosted local farmers, artists, activists and community members for an evening to support the Good Food for Hudson initiative, a project of the Lineage Farm founders Jen and Jon to grow food for people in the Hudson area who have limited access to fresh, local, organic and biodynamic produce.  Lineage Farm has a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) drop off in White Plains during the growing season.  White Plains artist Cornell Carelock a.k.a. Lord Judah emceed the evening, and Greenburgh activist, Jalal Sabur, made the connections between our criminal justice system, food deserts and prisons in upstate New York.  He is the founder of the Victory Bus Rides, a project where he provides families with fresh local produce and transportation to visit their loved ones in remote upstate prisons.   Sisters Kathleen Kalambay and Grace Moran provided entertainment for the evening and the delicious meal was provided by Giovanni “Chef D’Amour” with Break Bread not Hearts.  For more information, please contact WESPAC at 914.449.6514, [email protected]:
