Food Access and Education

Many Cincinnati Neighborhoods have been without a local grocery store or access to fresh foods and vegetables for nearly 20 years. While plans to open a traditional grocery store may not be on the horizon in the near future for several of our communities, a number of solutions to address this issue exist regionally.

Join us for a conversation with Michelle Moskowitz Brown, Director of Local Matters of Columbus, OH. Local Matters is a non-profit that works with issues of food sovereignty and community food security. Local Matters has extensive experience with food access and is the lead non-profit in the Columbus/Franklin county Local Food Action Plan.

Image is everything:Shaping your community's image

Perceptions of neighborhoods include perceptions of the social and built environment as well as the well-being of residents. The image we have of the neighborhood we live in, along with those around us is often a by-product of media accounts and hear-say.

While many neighborhoods have a great deal to offer new and existing residents such as unique housing, diverse social networks, and amenities for all age groups, we often avoid certain communities because of what we've heard about them.

So how can neighborhoods play a larger role in shaping the image of their own community? Join us for a conversation with Tripp Muldrow, principal in the firm Arnett Muldrow & Associates in Greenville, South Carolina. Arnett Muldrow believes every community has a story. They've helped communities across the country improve their image and facilitate re-branding efforts.
