LOCATION CHANGE: Coral Street Arts House | 2446 Coral Street.
Ariel Diliberto, veteran local food activist and Sustainable 19125 Project Coordinator with a BA in Urban Ecology from Vassar College, discusses the complexities of buying & growing local food. This talk is intended to provide thoughtful discussion for local food activists so they can fortify their practices to make them as effective as possible in terms of sustainability, social justice, and economics.
The idea for this talk was born out of Diliberto's senior thesis "How We Are Hungry: reconciling the growing appetite for local food with food insecurity in urban America." Afforded the luxury of critical distance from her on-the-ground work in this fast-growing movement, she found some discrepencies in the logic of the local food and food justice movement that she is eager to share with those dedicating their lives to the noble cause of fresh, healthy food for all.
Complete with video clips from Michael Pollan, Food Inc., and Freakanomics, this is bound to be a night filled with lively, productive discussion.
Join the discussion on Wednesday, June 13th. Complimentary beverages and light snacks at 6pm, the conversation begins at 6:30pm.
This event is free, please RSVP
