Dear Food Community Friends

You are invited to a Fitzroy Community Food Centre focus group on Monday April 14th 2014, 10am – 12 noon at the Atherton Gardens Community Kitchen located next to the Community Garden at the rear of 125 Napier Street Fitzroy.

Cultivating Community is engaged in an exciting feasibility study of the community kitchen and garden space based at Atherton Gardens in Fitzroy. Currently Cultivating Community coordinates the management of the kitchen, supporting and encouraging a variety of groups who utilise the space, and also run a weekly cooking program (http://www.cultivatingcommunity.org.au/food-systems-projects/community-kitchen/)

Visions of the Fitzroy Community Food Centre are grand, and largely inspired by Canadian models –

The aims of FCFC are to provide a thriving hub of community food activity. Imagine a week in the life of the Fitzroy Community Food Centre …
· Community and school cooking programs
· Small local enterprise including catering and cooking classes
· Community produce markets
· Wood-fired oven baking groups
· Cooking and gardening workshops
· Co-ops and food swaps
· Mothers groups
· Vocational education and training linkages
· Community food advocacy evenings

We are seeking community and organisational wisdom to contribute to the development of this project.
We hope you can make it to the discussion. Please rsvp by Friday 11th April to neesh@cultivatingcommunity.org.au or call 9429 3084.
If you are unable to make the date but would like to discuss the project further, please contact neesh as above.
Please also let us know if there are other people who you think we should invite to this stake holder consultation – we will also be conducting a second consultation for individuals and local residents.

Kind regards
Peta & Neesh
