Food Justice Workshop Series
Tuesdays – March 25, April 1, April 8, And April 15
Sponsored by the Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship
Organized by Kate Weiner ’15, StartingBloc Fellow, and Meagan Erhart, Food Justice Americorp VISTA Member
Where does our food come from and why does it matter? In this workshop series we will explore the issue of food justice and how it impacts our lives, our neighbors, and our planet. We will hear from experts in the field and brainstorm ways to get involved in our own communities. The workshop will culminate in developing a personal or group project designed to target injustices and spark positive change in the movement toward a healthy, just, and sustainable food system.
We will be meeting on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30. A home-cooked dinner from Long Lane Farm will be provided each week at 5:30 (thank you, Farm House!) with discussion to follow from 7 to 7:30.
We are now accepting applications! The deadline to apply is March 4, and you will be notified by March 11 about whether you have been selected to participate. We are looking for a core group of Wesleyan students with a passion for the cause of food justice and a specific interest in hands-on activism.
