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?”
