The week was a collaboration among [[Transition Goshen]], the [[Goshen Farmers Market]], [[The WIndow of Goshen|The Window]], [[Maple City Market]], [[Church Community Services]] (CCS) and other organizations committed to making healthy, local food more accessible in Goshen and Elkhart County.  The week's events included a variety of community dialogues including a World Cafe, an Open Space, and a panel discussion.
