Neighbor Power! is this Saturday!

Join the Food Coalition this year at Neighbor Power!, a gathering to inspire communities. The event will be a place to talk about how neighbors can make the city a better place to live, work, and play, and is free and open to everyone! Presenters from all over the Indianapolis food system will be sharing their stories about their projects within the food movement and the difference they’ve made in their neighborhoods. Gardens, farms, community development, youth engagement, and many other topics will be explored, and we want you to join the discussion!
