Diet for a Better Seattle: Quick, get over there. Or go tonight.

Whoa, I’m way late on this one, just in from my colleague Sharon Chan. Sounds like something the thinking fooderazzi shouldn’t miss. Too bad I’m sitting in Edmonds, and leaving in a few hours for Santa Rosa. . .

The Seattle City Council presents noted author and activist Francis Moore Lappe talking about Council President Richard Conlin’s Local Food Action Initiative. This new legislation would create a Seattle Food Action Plan, improve direct connections between farmers in the region and urban consumers including major institutions like hospitals, schools, and jails; support sustainable agriculture; aid local farmer’s markets and market gardens; and more.

Two events:

AS I WRITE:

Brownbag with City Council and Lappe, Friday, April 11, noon, Seattle City Hall, 600 Fourth Avenue, Second Floor, City Council Chambers, Free, Open to the Public.

LATER THIS EVENING:

A Conversation with Frances Moore Lappé

April 11, 5:00pm-7:00pm, Seattle City Hall, Bertha Knight Landes Room, 600 4th Ave, Seattle.
