Where do we go from here?

A message from The Food Project's Acting Executive Director J. Harrison in light of last night's decision from the Ferguson Grand Jury.

Over the coming days, weeks, and months, The Food Project community will wrestle with the same questions we will continue to face as a country:  Where do we go from here? How do we address inequity and racism? How do we build enough shared understanding across difference to be able to move forward together? What is the right work?

These questions are daunting in this time of hurt and anger, and we have to believe that the work we do together at The Food Project is part of the right work. 

Our Co-Founder Ward Cheney once said, "We are trying to provide people with a place where they get to know each other, where they feel connected to and responsible for others in their community, and where there is a deep and abiding relationship with the land that sustains us all."
