Savoury Stories: Food is Connection

Thursday, December 3 |  6:00 pm Film & 7:00pm panel session

Join us for an evening screening of Savoury Stories, this year’s edition Food is Connection. Come with us into the kitchens, and gardens of our community, to hear the stories of the relational nature of food. Prepare to go on a journey through the mosaic of diverse cultures, connections, histories, and relationships that food, and the land it comes, from weave in our communities. Following this screening, we will be joined by a diverse panel of local leaders in the food movement for a discussion on some of the key themes brought to light in this film.
