Food Summit at Town Hall Seattle: food politics, discussed

You’ve sat alone and read “Fast Food Nation,” devoured “In Defense of Food” and “The Omnivore’s Dilemma,” and read with awe a novel(ist’s) take on eating local in “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.” Maybe you’ve viewed “Food, Inc.” or sat around a table with friends and family discussing the state of our food systems and farm-workers over a cup of fair trade coffee and homemade bread. Or perhaps you’ve done exactly none of that, yet want to learn more about how we we can better the way we eat. Well, then: you’re invited to the Food Summit at Town Hall Seattle, held Wednesday, October 21 from 7 to 9 p.m. That’s when Erika Lesser, executive director of Slow Food USA leads a discussion that examines the question: “Good, clean, fair food: Can we have it all?”

Boiling and canning cane sugar is a slow food process, but it’s one well worth waiting for.

On tap to speak with authority are organic orchardist Adolfo Alvarez, PCC nutrition educator Goldie Caughlan, farm labor activist Rosalinda Guillen and community activist Teresa Mares, co-coordinator of the Food Justice Project. Proceeds from the $10 tickets benefit the Laurel Rubin Farm Worker Justice Project and are available in advance through brownpapertickets.com or by phone at 800-838-3006.
