Rachel Bolden-Kramer, My Food Stamps Cookbook

Saturday, August 31, 2019, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Rachel Bolden-Kramer is a writer and babymomma revolutionary originally from San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury. Rachel is a first-generation graduate of Harvard University. After a trauma, Rachel became an expert in navigating the welfare system and referenced her strategies for survival at the margins in her workshops on radical healing commissioned by the New York City Housing Authority. The early My Food Stamps Cookbook workshops grew into the Hip Dhamma Yoga Studio of Brooklyn, a community center owned and operated by Black Women yoga teachers in BedStuy. In May 2017, over 1,000 backers made the cookbook become a reality in print and ebook via crowdsourcing.  

Rachel is also featured in The Food Change, a public art project by CUESA championing farmers, advocates, and everyday people who are making positive change in our food system.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
