Lunch Speaker: Alethea Harper will address food-related issues affecting small businesses, innovative examples of local Oakland groups that are using entreprenership to create good jobs, business ownership opportunities, and access to healthy food in Oakland.  Alethea is Coordinator of the Oakland Food Policy Council (OFPC), a new organization being incubated at Food First. Before starting at the OFPC in 2008, Alethea was the AgParks and Food Systems Project Manager at SAGE, where she coauthored the San Francisco Foodshed Assessment: Think Globally - Eat Locally. Alethea grew up working alongside her mother on organic fruit and vegetable farms in upstate New York. Trained as an architect and landscape architect, Alethea holds a Master's degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley and a Bachelor's degree in Design of the Environment from the University of Pennsylvania. Her award-winning Master's thesis was entitled “Repairing the Local Food System: Long Range Planning for People's Grocery”. In early 2008, Alethea went on a research trip to Latin America, where she studied food systems and urban agriculture.
