(You may submit as many as you like, but please keep each theme separate):


Local Economic Impact

Design a poster reflecting how KCFC will keep money local. The economic impact that a grocery store has on its local economy is greater than just the sum of its local spending, because a portion of money spent locally recirculates. For example, food co-ops purchase from local farmers who, in turn, buy supplies from local sources, hire local technicians to repair equipment, and purchase goods and services from local retailers. To some extent, conventional grocers do too, but the gap is still significant. For every $1,000 a shopper spends at their local food co-op, $1,604 in economic activity is generated in their local economy-$239 more than if they had spent that same $1,000 at a conventional grocer.

Food Justice
Design a poster reflecting how KCFC will work towards food justice in our community. Food Justice is communities exercising their right to grow, sell and eat healthy food. Healthy food is fresh, nutritious, affordable, culturally-appropriate and grown locally with care for the well-being of the land, workers and animals. People practicing food justice leads to a strong local food system, self-reliant communities and a healthy environment.




We can’t wait to see what you come up with! For more information or if you have questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
