When: Thursday, March 19, 2020
Where: U-FLi Center, Room 520
We are proud to present a conversation and interactive workshop with alumni Jenny Li ’14 (Tooth and Nail Collective) and Chef Gabriela Alvarez ’11 (Liberation Cuisine). The workshop will address issues of building sustained community power and knowledge around food, focusing on accessible and communal practices for U-FLi students. Chef Gabriela Alvarez, based in NYC, works to bring healthy food options into urban communities and provides accessible and healthy cuisine for social justice organizations. Jenny Li, based locally, works in a farming collective that aims to reclaim ancestral knowledge of the land in order to use food sources as a method of healing. Together, they will discuss what it means to harness the social and cultural capital of community power and knowledge of food for working class people. Students will leave the event with personalized herbal tea blends and dining hall inspired food recipes.
