2 person teams and solo racers took on the Farmer’s 3 Hour Fat Bike Race this past Saturday. Conditions could not have been better! Several inches of snow on the ground, flurries in the air, no wind and temps hovering around 20.
Danielle Musto took the win in the Women’s Solo class and Dan Jansen won the Men’s Solo. In the Duo class Priority Health Pugs Division won coming in just ahead of the Founder’s Alger Racing team.
Stay tuned to xxcmag.com and XXC Magazine for more on this super fun race. It killed me not to be out there having fun in the snow with these folks but it was just as fun to take pics and video. I have never seen racers having such a good time as I did at this “fat bike” race.
Mission The Color of Food aims to address the lack of voices from Asian, Black, Latino and Native American communities in the dialogue on healthy food and food justice. These topics have rapidly come into the limelight lacking input from diverse communities. If we cannot see and hear from these communities, we will not have a food system free of racial inequities.
Projects Network: The Color of Food is growing an online directory and map worldwide of farmers, urban growers, food activists, and other food-related initiatives led by people of color and/or communities of color. This not only allows for easy access for consumers and increased marketing for farmers and markets, but will also serve as a powerful model within the food movement where the voices of communities of color – our most impacted communities on the issue of food security, land rights and health - are not being heard loud and clear.

this short film was created by four first year students studing at oberlin college. the school year was 2009-2010. as i look back at the film, i wonder what can be learned about the summer of 2010? how did this film impact local food in lorain county ohio? what solutions came into being concerning food access? did these students and their professor create dialoge that has opened up the conversation about food distribution? hmmm? perhaps time will tell but right now it is to soon to know.
what do you think?
