Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have now surpassed 400 parts per million. Our food and agricultural system is already exhibiting impacts from our changing climate as evidenced by recent storms, floods, and droughts.
We invite you to join Community Food Funders, farmers, community leaders, and food systems experts for a three-part breakfast series. The series will focus on the impact of Hurricanes Irene and Sandy on our food system, and strategies to increase resiliency on regional farms and in our food distribution infrastructure as we anticipate the effects from our changing climate.
