Handouts on Community Food Issues

Your Community Your Food Cover

These simple, colorful handouts are designed to inspire people to learn more and to take action, and to link them up with local organizations (this could be you!) They are beautifully designed, with original artwork on the front. Each includes brief educational information, action ideas and space to add local contact information.

The handouts are available for free in two versions: downloadable full-page PDFs and printed cards. Spanish-language versions are also available.

  3. Good Food we Can Afford - Today and Tomorrow

You can add local contact information electronically (directions here), or by using a label or a rubber stamp.

Printed Cards

These are smaller versions of the same three handouts, printed on 100% recycled card stock with 50% post-consumer content. You can add local contact information by using a label or a rubber stamp.

We are currently out of printed cards in English. Please email Emily Becker ( to be notified if CFSC reprints the cards. The printed cards are still available in Spanish.

Let us know what you think about these handouts, or how you use them. We'd love to hear from you! Contact Kai Siedenburg (
