The Future of Food: Recentering Our Origins
Monday, July 30, 2018, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A reclamation of our deep cultural foodways is in order. Food is at the core of humanity, sustaining our bodies and grounding us in our communities. At a time when the industrial food system continues to negatively impact our health and the planet, the next generation of food activists is calling on us to decolonize our eating habits and ways of growing, preparing, and sharing food.
Engage in conversation with visionary food professionals who are redefining the dialogue around good food. Join CUESA as some of the Bay Area’s premiere food change makers share stories about their paths, the pioneers who have inspired their journeys, and how they’re working to recenter their heritage in agriculture, food media, and politics. This conversation will build connections and provoke action.
