Come join Witness for Peace New England
<https://www.facebook.com/WFPnewengland/> at Stone Soup
<https://www.facebook.com/stonesoupworcester/> on Sunday Feb. 10th at
6:30 pm for a community dinner and report back from our food justice
delegation to Cuba last month.
From December 12-21, a mostly Boston-based group of urban farmers and
activists of color from the Urban Farming Institute of Boston
Collaborative <https://www.facebook.com/farmcollab/>, Healing, Empathy,
Redemption, Oasis <https://www.facebook.com/herocenter22/>, The Food
Project <https://www.facebook.com/thefoodproject/>, Spanish Immersion
<https://www.facebook.com/spanish.immersion.3> and other organizations
traveled in solidarity to Havana, Artemisa and Pinar del Río, alongside
the Centro Memorial "Martin Luther King"
<https://www.facebook.com/MartinLutherKing30/>, in order to learn about
sustainable food, farming and activism.
Meet our delegates as they share photos and stories, explain useful
practices in agroecology and community resilience, discuss
cross-movement solidarity building, and give updates on how they have
been incorporating lessons from Cuba into their own work for food
sovereignty and environmental justice.
We will have art, literature and artesanía for sale to help support
scholarships for this delegation, and will also provide information on
an upcoming Worcester-based delegation to Cuba in June 2019! Please
reach out to Lee at 857-636-8479 or Shahbaz A. Soofi

are able to bring a dish for our community dinner!
