LYNN — North Shore Community College (NSCC) will host a listening session Monday, Feb. 26 to gather feedback from Lynn residents on a vision and set of priorities to build a better food system.
The listening session will be on the Lynn campus in LS 312 from 11 a.m. to noon. It will introduce Lynn Grows, a two-year-old alliance formed by The Food Project and the Lynn Food and Fitness Alliance to partner with Lynn residents and community stakeholders to create a more equitable and healthy food system in Lynn.
This partnership is led by a steering committee of 25 members who are Lynn residents, institutional stakeholders, and members of community groups. The steering committee recently drafted a vision and list of priorities to guide the Lynn Grows initiative through implementation and are now looking for input from the community.
The goal of the Feb. 26 session is to learn more about people’s experiences with the current food system and gain feedback on the vision and priorities drafted by the committee.
The discussion will be facilitated by youth and members from The Food Project and the Lynn Food and Fitness Alliance.
NSCC students will be given a $10 gift card to the NSCC cafeteria at the end of the presentation.
