Join the Peoples Climate March NYC on September 21
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
The Food Justice contingent of the People’s Climate March will demonstrate one of the many solutions to the climate crisis: a healthy, sustainable food system. We will depict the many ways a local and organic food system, accessible to all, providing good jobs,can decrease greenhouse gasses created in the large scale growing, processing and distribution of food. We Also demonstrated will be how organic and sustainable agriculture and gardening can actually pull carbon from the atmosphere and put it back in the soil where it belongs!
Marching with us will be farmers, community and school gardeners, celebrity chefs, restaurant workers and culinary students in “kitchen whites”, food processing workers, food coop and CSA, members, farmers market enthusiasts, anti-hunger and pro-health advocates as well as garden variety food justice activists and foodies. Look for our beautiful food justice signs. And watch out for our giant onion/globe with a root system that connects all our contingent.
Logistics: We will be meeting on one of the side streets west of Central Park West at 11 am. Please bring hats, sun block, lots of water, whatever signs you wish to express your ideas, pots and pans and your great dedication to protecting our planet for generations to come.

To change everything, we need everyone on board.
