Upcoming Talk: Bryant Terry on Food Justice

A Black/Afrikan man is coming to Halifax to talk about food, politics and health. Yes!

On November 23rd, the Food Lawyers of Canada will be hosting a talk given by Bryant Terry, called Food Justice: Poverty, Politics and Public Health.

Terry is an author, chef,  and social justice advocate. How cool of a combination is that?

And the combination of these occupations makes so much sense as it becomes more clear how food is more than what we eat. It is a symbol of power, health and also of celebration. It is political.  Think of pesticides on fruits, low wages for farmers. Think of diabetes prevalent in African communities.

The description says that Terry uses cooking as a tool to address intersections between poverty, racism and food security.  It sounds like it will be unique and more engaging take on these issues.

Details: Thursday, November 3rd at 7:30pm

Location: Halifax Seaport Market, 1209 Marginal Road, Halifax Nova Scotia
