Radical food practices
– Workshop & Free-of-Charge Community Meal -
Our Anti University
event at Cooperation Town Hub Gardens
was session of collective learning exploring the links between radical politics and communal food practices. We learned from historic examples like the Black Panthers’ breakfast programme and food sovereignty in social struggles to talk about what we can draw from them for new movements seeking to build sustainable and joyful food communities at the local level.
The event was facilitated by Leila Dear and Beth Martin and organised in collaboration with the National Food Service London
, followed by a free-of-charge vegetarian/vegan community lunch provided by the resident Refugee Community Kitchen
