Stirrings: How Activist New Yorkers Ignited a Movement for Food Justice @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Speaker:
Lana Dee Povitz and Kathy Goldman
Presider: Rebecca Lurie
Featuring Music by:
The Brooklyn Women’s Chorus

Author Lana Dee Povitz talks with the book’s most featured protagonist, Kathy Goldman. The stories touch the range of free school lunch, breakfast and summer food programs to the origins of the Park Slope Food Coops and God’s Love, We Deliver. Feeding people in need may seem like a charitable act. And getting good food to people at good prices may be part of a sustainable practice. But the book and the stories go further to illustrate that when done in connection to the broader view of our unjust political and economic system, getting people fed is directly tied to a movement to end poverty and for economic justice. We will explore through a personal lens what we can do when we espouse notions of “good food”.
