Creating a name for an organization is a powerful act.
In the comment field below, please share the name you might choose for the organization. Serious names, silly names, striking names, all are welcome. And you do not need to have been to the meetings to suggest one to the group.
Here are a couple questions to ask yourself as you think of names?
-What is it that makes this group unique?
-What focus do we want to bring to the attention of the public?
-Who do we want to be our future members? And will they identify with this name?
During the meeting on January 29th, we created a new mission and vision for the Indianapolis Food, Farm and Family Coalition. Although we spoke of creating a new name, we tabled that discussion in hopes that after our brainstorming we would have a better idea about who we are and thus would have a better idea about how we could identify ourselves. Well I beg the question...What should we call ourselves?
On February 22nd, we will hang all of these different ideas up and make a decision about which name we identify with most.
STUCK..? Think about our newly formed mission statement:
"Our mission is to enhance the health of our community by improving the food system and increasing access to resources and nutritious food."
