Calling All POC Food Activists!

Food Justice PotluckDOWNLOAD FLYER and RSVP on Facebook

Join us for our 2nd community gathering on Monday, August 1st from 6 PM – 8 PM at Danny Woo Community Garden! After a successful potluck at Pratt Park last summer, I’m excited to be able to co-coordinate a POC-centered food justice potluck with fellow activist, Andy Allen!

This is a fantastic opportunity to socialize, eat delicious food, and build community with other POCs doing food and environmental justice work or who have a food business. This year we’ll get together at one of Seattle’s original community gardens–Danny Woo Community Garden–which has been cultivated by API elders for over 40 years!

As a potluck, we’re asking folks to bring a dish to add to the table. This is a family-friendly event! In the spirit of connecting and building relationships please feel free to bring and share business cards and other information about your agency or work, however we kindly ask that no vending or exchange of monetary currency occur.

Logistics:

  • WHO: Anyone who identifies as a person of color, who is engaged (or interested in being engaged) in food & environmental justice work, has their own food business, or just really loves food!
  • WHAT:  A casual evening potluck in the garden to share food, stories, and build a unified network of food activists.
  • WHERE: 620 S. Main St., Seattle, WA 98122 [we’ll be hanging out at the Cookery which is in the northwest part of the garden]
  • WHEN: Monday, August 1st from 6 PM – 8 PM
  • TRANSPORTATION: There is 2 hr paid street parking along S. Main St. We are a block from the First Hill Streetcar, 3 blocks from the International District Light Rail Tunnel, and the 36, 7, 14, 70, 49 all run a block away on Jackson.
  • ACCESSIBILITY: Unfortunately, the garden is not wheelchair accessible. There are roughly 60 steps from the main entrance to the garden as well as many uneven pathways and surfaces. We ask that this be a scent free event, although as a community garden that uses traditional fertilizing practices there can be strong natural smells. The nearest bathrooms are located across the street at the InterIm CDA office and they are gender neutral.
