“For a second consecutive year, Healthy Acadia, Impact Justice, and College of the Atlantic are teaming up to highlight and garner support for local food justice projects with three days of community conversations and engagement events planned for Sept. 7-9.”

“Every dollar raised through ticket sales will be divided equally to benefit Healthy Acadia’s Downeast Restorative Harvest project and Impact Justice’s Chefs in Prisons. Interested community members are invited to email to learn more, purchase a ticket, or explore options if cost is a barrier.”

“In this panel, Dr. Kourtney Collum will lead a discussion with Regina Grabrovac, Leslie Soble, and Rebekah Mende about their work and expertise on these and other projects to realize food justice and build community food security in Maine and beyond.”

Leslie Soble (she/her) manages the Food in Prison Project and is the lead author of Impact Justice’s national report, Eating Behind Bars: Ending the Hidden Punishment of Food in Prison. An ethnographer and folklorist, Leslie has spent nearly five years immersed in research on the carceral eating experience and its impacts on individuals, communities, and the environment. In her current role, she oversees Impact Justice’s initiatives at the intersection of food and incarceration.”
