Not Just Talk: Food in the South Bronx
Saturday, February 16, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Join us Saturday, February 16th!
From conflict can come progress. On February 16th we create a platform of inclusion, celebration, discussion and action. Join us for a multidiscplinary approach to discuss food and food access effect on the South Bronx (and beyond).
The South Bronx is a community through which millions of pounds of food arrive everyday but residents have little access to. On that day we will come together in the spirit of progress, action and resiliency. We will explore the themes that create our current reality and then celebrate those who engage, dream big and move forward!
It is a day of talks, visioning, art, music and of course great food and drink.
Don't worry if you can't make it, we will be livestreaming the event.
Check back often as we add more info about our speakers, panelists, muscians and artist.
Confirmed so far:
The BLK ProjeK addresses food justice, environmental justice and public and mental health by empowering underserved women of color through political education, beautification of community spaces, urban farming and holistic health programming. By creating equal access to these enriching experiences for under-served women of color, we strengthen and empower our entire society.
