Pre-Summit Urban Farm Tour at Giving Garden (Optional/Space is limited)
Limited Capacity seats available

Hear the farm's story and how they support social and business enterprises that make a difference for local communities and residents. An overview of the farm tour can be found below:

Provsio Partners for Health Giving Garden
The Giving Garden is an urban farm training program for high school students from Proviso East High School. A local business owner donated land that could promote the well-being of High School students. Partners from schools, health, businesses, and community worked in alignment to build the garden as a site to grow, learn, and sell food. The youth leaders created a mission for themselves to use plants in the service of others at the garden. The Giving Garden is working to become a social enterprise that uses market forces to create a healthier food environment.  

Parking
Free street parking is available along the right side of Greenwood Ave (just south of Madison Street) in Maywood. The Giving Garden will be located immediately to the left of this parking. Additional parking can be found in the ReUse Depot parking lot.

Pre-Summit Urban Farm Tour at KnockOut Farm (Optional/ Space is limited)
Limited Capacity seats available

Hear the farm's story and how they support social and business enterprises that make a difference for local communities and residents.  A description of this farm tour is below:

Opportunity Knocks - KnockOut Farm
We are so excited at the KnockOut Farm to be wrapping up the harvest of summer crops and looking forward to new culinary delights for the fall season. Following our focus on our fall theme of FLOW, which reminds us to remain flexible and adjustable as things change, we are studying helpful processes on the farm from beginning to end starting with proper harvesting techniques and food safety and sanitation rules. Our Warriors (KnockOut Farm participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities) are also helping with the redesign of the farm to include a wash pack station and meditation garden, which incorporate the FLOW principle. With every step there is a purpose, form, and function...we “learn to understand” and stay adaptable and always open as life on the farm is ever-changing and so are we! Come learn the way of the Warrior and join us for a fun, fall harvest and horticultural therapy reflection focused on being present in the moment.

Location: 50 Madison Street, Maywood, IL 60153

KnockOut Farm is located on the north side of the Re-Use Depot. Parking is available along the west-facing wall upon entering the driveway. A parking attendant will be present to direct parking and traffic flow. Parking in the Re-Use Depot parking lot is unavailable during this event.

It Takes More than Willpower: Supporting Healthy Eating through Food Policy
Healthy eating in America today is like trudging through deep snow. Policy, food environment, and system changes can clear a path for people to make it possible for them to eat well to prevent disabilities, reduce healthcare costs, and live longer, healthier lives. Dr. Wootan will explore how in-store marketing, advertising, disinformation campaigns, portion sizes, restaurant foods, and defaults often encourage unhealthy eating and eating too much. The session will outline promising policy and environmental approaches that can help to reshape the food system and make healthier choices easier, especially for low-income families.

Cook County Good Food Purchasing Program Update
Cook County became the third local government in the U.S. to approve a resolution promoting the Good Food Purchasing Program (GFPP) in May 2018. GFPP provides a metric-based framework for food procurement that advances a healthy, sustainable, and equitable food system through five core value categories: Local Food Economies, Valued Workforce, Environmental Sustainability, Animal Welfare and Nutrition. Cook County’s resolution emphasizes purchasing food from business owners of color or from low to moderate-income communities to build economic sustainability for all. Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) is leading Good Food Purchasing Program implementation throughout Cook County departments and agencies with the support of the Chicago Food Policy Action Council and the Cook County Good Food Task Force. The panel will discuss progress with implementation of Cook County Good Food Purchasing Program and opportunities moving forward.
