BEYOND SERVICE INCLUDED: A FOOD AND LABOR GATHERING
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM | Brooklyn Brewery
Food Book Fair is proud to host a guided conversation that explores issues of fair food and labor all along the food chain. This is for everyone: people who work in and around food at all levels of the food-production and restaurant industries, as well as anyone (diners, educators, activists, legislators) who is invested in how the food we eat is grown, produced, made, distributed and who does all that work.
The evening will kick off with guest speakers illustrating different perspectives and arguments, followed by breakout sessions for demographic-specific issues, before circling back again to discuss, as a group, concrete, practical ideas for tackling what we've discussed.
All are welcome to attend, and all are welcome to speak and contribute.
*Shift drink and snacks lovingly provided by BentoBox and Etsy
