MLK Tree Scout Day

 

mlkdayOC Food Access Coalition will be having a Harvest Club event in honor of the Martin Luther King Day of Service on January 18th, 2014. The Martin Luther King Day of Service was created in 1994 by congress, and has been led by the Corporation for National and Community Service ever since. The MLK Day of Service is a call for community action, allowing individuals to help solve social problems in their communities through service. It is placed at the beginning of the year to encourage citizens to start their new year by giving to others.

The Harvest Club will be bringing community members together in an effort to scout local food sources in Orange County neighborhoods on January 18th. The MLK Tree Scout Day will also enable individuals and groups to connect with locals about food security and local produce.A combination of faith-based, academic and social groups in the area have signed up to take part. Our wonderful volunteers will be scouting neighborhoods in Tustin, Orange and Santa Ana.

We are very excited to see the fruits of their labor and spread the message of healthy, sustainable, affordable food for all that OC Food Access Coalition is all about.
