Food insecurity: Get in on the discussion

by Ed Nicholson

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned AgChat, the excellent Twitter discussion about food production  that occurs every Tuesday evening from 8-10 Eastern.  Once a month, the group uses the hashtag #foodchat to broaden the discussion beyond agriculture. 

This week’s #Foodchat topic will be Food Insecurity.  If you’re involved in hunger relief, your perspective is critical to this discussion.

This is a great opportunity for hunger advocates to communicate with a diversity of those interested in how our food is produced.  Past participants have included farmers of all kinds (dairy, meat, vegetable, fiber, local/organic, larger farms), advocates, corporate types, and more.   Most of us have a dog in the hunt. That’s what makes it interesting.  It’s a moderated discussion, so respect of fellow participants is demanded. 

The best way to join the discussion is to sign in to your Twitter account via a Webchat tool such as Tweetchat or Twubs.  When you sign in, use the hashtag #foodchat.  (If you’ve never used one of these tools, it’s easy and safe; just go to the link and sign in)

Hope to see you there.
