Central Appalachian Network: Rural, Environmentally-sustainable Economic Development Through CAN’s work with rural entrepreneurs and value chains, we’ve recognized the importance of market access for strengthening rural-based economic sectors. Following the 2013 CAN Tank gathering described below, we distilled the experience and analysis of over 50 of Appalachia’s leading development practitioners down to a set of concrete strategies. Click here for the 3-page briefing paper on strategies for Expanding Market Access for Rural Enterprises. We hope it can inform your work to build sustainable rural economies in Appalachia! CAN members and partners were part of a gathering hosted by the Red Mantra Group in August 2013, which brought local food system developers and supporters together with a diverse group of corporate buyer representative.

Ethical Eating: Food and Environmental Justice CSAI
Waking up is hard to do. I awoke from a seminarian nightmare. Perhaps it was simply a school nightmare. I dreamed that I needed to finish four classes to complete my b.a. in order to complete my divinity degree. Ethical Eating: Produce
The Ethical Eating Project - Overview First some background: at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly, we passed a Statement of Conscience on Ethical Eating. I didn't like it. Here is the draft closest to what we passed, though a few mostly superficial amendments were adopted from the floor. Kinsi had a nice discussion of the class issues in the first draft. There were some changes made to that draft (reflected in the draft at the first link) to at least tone down the overall elitist feel of the thing.
Learning About Ethical Eating Rev. Nate Walker has issued a challenge to folks to practice the new ethical eating resolution of the Unitarian Universalist Association by, if one already does not live on a food assistance program, living within that budget monthly and follow the resolution text. Okay, I agree that's a practice in empathy. But that only works if you also present yourself with the same limitations in shopping that many people living on food assistance also have. Food assistance programs are also needed for many folks living with social security disbursements, because of their limited ssi & ssdi (another unethical situation – how is it that “social security” doesn’t allow for a minimal standard of living in accordance with basic human dignity?). If you live with food restrictions, too, don't forget you don't get off them during this little project.
