Event Details

WHY?  For the past 5-10 years local food initiatives across Tasmania, aimed at addressing the social determinants of health, particularly those addressing food security, emergency food relief and access to healthy food choices, have found it challenging to ensure their sustainability into the future. The demand for such initiatives remains constant; the need is unquestionable.  However, sustainably delivering these programs and therefore building upon the progress they have made is challenging.

WHAT? This workshop features our special guest Devita Davison from the Detroit FoodLab.  It has been designed for organisations and individuals who are interested in ensuring that everyone living in the ‘suburbs’ has access to good, healthy food.  You could be a part of the community, food workforce, practitioner, business-owner, public servant, social entrepreneur. You do not need to be a food business expert -- everyone is welcome!  The workshop will delve into:

  • The role of social enterprises in achieving food justice
  • Engaging people power to shift the food system
  • Using economics to engage decision makers

DEVITA  Our international guest Devita Davison combines her passion for culinary arts with activism and entrepreneurship.  As Co-Director of FoodLab Detroit, a non-profit organization that represents a diverse community of food businesses and allies working to make good food a sustainable reality for all Detroiters, Devita works to provide support to over 140+ food businesses through resource connection, mentoring, high-quality workshops, field-trips and networking opportunities --- all with the goal of cultivating good food businesses.
