More than three years ago, I started this blog (originally called "San Antonio Food Policy Initiative") to share information with my city about the powerful food movement I was discovering at conferences, and to advocate for a food policy council here. Food policy councils are a way for ordinary citizens to come together to address problems in the way our food is grown, distributed and so forth. Food democracy, food citizenship, food sovereignty are all terms associated with this momentum toward a more just and sustainable food system.
Since then, the Food Policy Council of San Antonio has formed, done some great work, and held a two-day conference. I didn't start it myself, but I've gotten to be part of it. Soon we will be a 501c3 with our own website, and that name would have been confused with the real organization that we now have.
I have opened another site that is just me, and it might talk about policy if that's what is on my mind. Or it might just talk about the great taste of kale chips from my garden, or how gorgeous my three red hens look against the green grass.
So that's why I'm moving. If you like, follow me on over to BlacklandFoodie.net.
If I post anything else here, it will be on behalf of FPCSA, until our own site is up. Ciao!
