How can we be part of something that brings us closer together, not further apart? The UK has the fourth most unequal distribution of income in Europe. ‘Reducing inequalities’ is one of the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals – but rebalancing the ‘spirit level’ of inequality shouldn’t feel like an aspirational, uphill battle. There is a lot happening in the food space to (re)create a strong sense of community, provide opportunities for people to come together, grow, cook and eat together, and feel more empowered to create a society that is better for everyone. By building strong food communities, we can help make society more equal. So how can we unleash the power of food communities?

Join us to find out on Thursday, 21st March 2019 (6.30-8.45pm) at Impact Hub Kings Cross to explore how to be part of making that happen.

Speakers will include Dee Woods (Granville Community Kitchen – cook, community food practitioner, driving force behind People’s Food Policy and London Food Board member) and Nynke Brett (Project Director at Made in Hackney, pioneering local community food kitchen and cookery school). The evening will be chaired by Anna Cura from the Food Ethics Council, who leads the organisation’s work on #FoodCitizenship.

#FoodTalks is brought to you by a partnership of the Food Ethics Council, Impact Hub Kings Cross, Organico, and London Food Link, part of Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming. At each of our #FoodTalks events, you will hear from expert speakers, get the opportunity to participate in the discussion, and be able to eat some delicious buffet food.
