You Are What You Eat: Storytelling Through Food
March 9 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm$25 – $100
NOTE: This is a five-part series. You can take just one, two…or all five.
Your health, your identity, your culture—and the health of your environment—all share close ties to the food you eat every day and to the systems around you that influence where, how, and from whom you get your food.
Farm Table is excited to bring three instructors together—experts in cooking, nutrition, health and wellness, food justice, and food systems—for a new series of classes. In each class you’ll learn some new recipes and think about how the recipes you cherish tell part of your story and reflect your identity and culture. You will also learn about, and consider, how those recipes, those ingredients, connect to personal and environmental health. And, together, our instructors will explore and discuss how food, environment, and culture are fundamental elements of equity and justice, and how each of them navigates the ongoing inequities of our world and our food system through their work, their cooking, and their communities.
Join us for one or all of the classes in this series:
