Join Nourish|Resist as we participate in these upcoming community events:
CUESA | Resist Together! Reframing the Food Movement
Thursday, March 23, 2017 6:00PM-8:30PM
This event is for anyone interested in building the movement for a just and sustainable food system: one where immigrants are welcome, workers are cared for, people are nourished, and climate change is faced head-on. Realizing this vision will require collaboration across cultures and issues. How can the food movement support broader efforts to protect civil rights, public health, and the environment? This is a time for food, labor, climate, anti-racism, and other forces to unite.
This panel of movement leaders and community organizers will share success stories and help us understand how, working together, we have the power to create change. After the talk, mingle with representatives from local organizations to find out what we can do to keep government accountable and create a new future.

La Cocina | F&B Voices from the Kitchen: Race
Friday, Apr 7, 2017 6:00 PM-8:30 PM
La Cocina’s F&B: Voices From the Kitchen is a storytelling event designed to share the less often heard voices from kitchens across the country while providing guests with a full sensory experience including food, drinks and real contemplation. This season’s theme revolves around race.
Race has been and is one of the most defining aspects of what it means to be American. In our Spring F&B, we invite speakers to explore their experience and understanding of race and we invite guests into their consciousness, their fears, their knowledge and their personal experiences. We're honored to share voices like Todd Kliman's (Coding dinner in DC), Michael Twitty, Alexis Madrigal, Fernay McPherson, Stephanie Fields, Nourish|Resist, The People's Kitchen Collective, Tunde Wey, Bonnie Tsui, Tannis Reinhertz, Jennifer 8. Lee, Crystal Sykes and more. You can expect to learn about the culture of cutty bangs, growing up in the Fillmore during the 80s, the Black Panthers Free Breakfast program, the racial undertones of the chinese chicken salad, resistance, identity, heritage, discomfort and more.
