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.
