It’s a feast for the mind, heart and ear! From farms to community gardens to restaurants, women are taking food back into our own hands in revolutionary new ways!
Join us for our Feminist Foodie special program… with Ms. Magazine writer Jennifer Cognard-Black on “The Feminist Food Revolution”. And Temra Costa, editor of the anthology Farmer Jane: Women Changing The Way We Eat.
Women’s grassroots and public policy groups have been shaking up the US food economy around nutrition and agricultural worker rights, creating sustainable and locavore movements and challenging gender roles… from the fields to the chefs’ kitchen.
We take a look at women working for sustainable food – like the women profiled in ‘Farmer Jane’, and First lady Michelle Obama- just some of the feminist foodies making a difference.
AND Feminist Foodie giveaways you won’t want to miss! Like our Thank You Gifts that we’ve put together just for you. Tune in on Wednesday at 7pm to get your choice of thank you gifts including the recently released DVD Nourish: Food & Community – the movie that connects us to what a difference our food choices make. And … the intriguing read Farmer Jane – “a call to action” with profiles of thirty women changing the way we eat. Plus… tickets to the fabulous upcoming LA Street Food Fest Summer Tasting!
