“Participating in Eating City workshops and the Steering Committee means raising awareness and enables collective agency. Through working with EC Staff I value the vast pool of expertise from different fields regarding food. It is a joy to see Eating City community develop every year so fruitfully and with such enthusiasm from all the stakeholders. I hope we bring to light the world we envision.”
