Listen in to our interview with Elizabeth Berkeley the executive director of Chicago Grows Food. Chicago Grows Food was formed as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic and operating since 2020 and will have our 3-year anniversary in March of 2023. Elizabeth will give you an overview of CGF and what the future outlook is for 2023 and beyond.
I am admittedly biased about Chicago Grows Food and the efforts that have emerged since the coalition began as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic in Chicago. See the Chicago Grows Food website for more information about this evolving project.
Here is the list of the coalition partners, understand that many people and organizations have contributed to the CGF program. They are numerous and I hesitate to list them for fear that I will forget one entity or another. Also, as the program evolves moving forward I am sure the coalition membership will expand.
Stay tuned for updates and also on the website be sure to sign up for the newsletter. Beginning with this episode the food literacy podcast will be distributed with the CGF monthly newsletter.
