Come Join Us at Our Next Meeting!

Thursday, November 21, 2013 – 6:30 p.m.

13572938Come join us at the Warehouse Cafe (140 Bay Street in the Powerhouse Arts District in Downtown Jersey City) on Thursday, November 21, as we discuss, Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System by Raj Patel. Just in time for Thanksgiving!

“It is difficult to pick up a newspaper without reading about increasing food crises in much of the world or the epidemic of obesity in America. Raj Patel argues that both are symptoms of the corporate food monopoly. From seed to store to plate, Stuffed and Starved explains the steps to regain control of the global food economy, stop the exploitation of farmers and consumers, and rebalance global sustenance.”

Interested in your local food system, health, and some of the food issues raised by Patel in his book? Don’t have time to read it? Join us anyway for what should be great discussion.

Plus we’ll swap recipes on appropriately stuffed things–cabbage, peppers, tomatoes, etc! So bring your favorite recipe along.
