Introducing the Hazon Food Guide and Food Audit Toolkit

Over the years, many of you have come to Hazon asking “What next?!”  You’re doing Jewish Food Education, have started a garden or a CSA project.  What’s the next step to changing the food at your Jewish institution?

Hazon’s Food Guide and Food Audit Toolkit  will enable you to:

  1. Identify the strengths and weaknesses of your institution’s policies and practices for promoting food sustainability and justice through a scoresheet that covers seven main categories
  2. Develop an action plan for improving your institution’s food sustainability and justice policies and practices, and;
  3. Involve your institution in implementing this plan.

We’re looking for 5-8 synagogues, Day Schools, JCCs or other Jewish institutions to participat in our pilot season, and at least one staff or lay person to lead the project.  It may not be you — please forward this information along to folks at your institution who may be interested.

The 6-month pilot season includes the full Hazon Food Guide and Food Audit Toolkit, a training webinar every other month, support from Hazon in using the Audit to identify next steps for your institution, and a pilot group listserv.  The first webinar is on Food Day, October 24 at 1pm PST / 4pm EST.
