Within 24 hours of the first flames from the northern California fires, farmers, workers, distributors, and chefs organized to feed people. Farmers pulled products from their smoky fields and from winter storage, loading them onto trucks. Thousands upon thousands of pounds of food came pouring into emergency centers from small-scale farms across the county.

The fires laid bare our social inequities and our environmental vulnerabilities.

We’re still in shock over the fire’s staggering damage to lives and livelihoods. Still, we pause to thank each other… in the fields, the kitchens, and the emergency centers, for coming together. Reflecting on what just happened, we ask ourselves, “What might be possible?”

Join panelists who are organizing for a brighter, mores resilient future through food, agriculture, and worker justice out of the northern California fires:

Davin Cardenas, North Bay Organizing Project
Suzi Grady, Petaluma Bounty
Evan Wiig, Farmers Guild
Moderator Caiti Hachmyer, Red H Farm
