You Eat What You Are – Lansing
December 17th from 5-7pm
The Food Bank Council of Michigan is hosting its 2013 finale of a series of dialogues revolving around various aspects of food justice and food sovereignty. The event will be held at the historical Lansing Armory on Tuesday, December 17th in the Food Bank Council of Michigan headquarters. Company & Conversation is a series of dialogues intended to lay out a canvas for fluid discussions that combine the topics of food and social justice, while incorporating an element of artistic expressions.
Each dialogue focused on a different topic related to food justice and provided an open and free conversation on the designated topic. Previous discussions have revolved around social inequality, land use policy, and the effects of our current food system, all of which have ignited passionate and fascinating conversations.
December’s discussion, You Eat What You Are, closes the 2013 Company and Conversation series with a vibrant discussion on food choices and how they relate, intersect, and articulate the cultural, relational, and environmental landscape of who we are and who we’ve become. “How do your food choices identify you?”
“Our events host a very diverse and enlightened group of individuals that make our discussions both entertaining and illuminating.” said Kareemah El-Amin, Executive Director of the Food Bank Council of Michigan. “We will continue to grow as a community by continuing to open our minds and learn from one another, we are fortunate to have such a great group of people interested in working together to promote food security and sovereignty.”
The Company & Conversation dialogue will take place at the Food Bank Council of Michigan office in the Nonprofit Center at the Armory on December 17th from 5-7pm. For more information, please contact the Food Bank Council of Michigan at (517) 485-1202 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
