On Thursday, Nov. 17, Brookwood Community Farm presents a panel discussion titled "Toward Food Security for All: Building a Local and Just Food System." The event takes place at 7 p.m. in the Keys Community Room at the Milton Public Library. At 6:30, homemade soup, bread, and cider will be served. The suggested donation is $5.

Participants will discuss issues such as hunger, food insecurity, and how to improve access to healthy food -- matters grappled with regularly at Brookwood. The farm donates at least 10 percent of its produce to food banks and maintains a presence at farmers' markets in low-income communities, in addition to offering CSA and education programs.

Panelists include Judy Lieberman and Simca Horwitz of Brookwood Community Farm, Vivien Morris of the Mattapan Food and Fitness Coalition, Ellen Parker of Project Bread, Jim Buckle of Allandale Farm, and Ashley Stanley of Lovin' Spoonfuls. Food writer Louisa Kasdon moderates.

For more information, go to or call 617-967-4578.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
