Building the Beloved Food Community
Sponsored by the School of Social Work, Rackham Graduate School and Slow Food Huron Valley.
What does food have to do with community? How can food be used to help build "the beloved community" and simultaneously transcend and celebrate difference?
Through an interactive, participatory dialogue with speakers from Calder Dairy, Zingerman's Creamery, and the Community Farm of Ann Arbor, this event will engage local food producers and community gardeners who see community-building as a part of their work.
Some partner with other local producers to create artisanal food products and develop more outlets for local foods, and others bring people together around the love of growing food and desire to "green" communities.
Over a sampling of local foods, we will celebrate our local food communities and reflect on how to build more vibrant, beloved food communities that nourish people and the land. This event will be the first in a series of teach-ins and celebrations of food communities at home and around the world.
