We’re very excited to announce that Digesting Politics lunches are back…. The idea is to share food and share ideas, over a series of short, informal presentations about the politics of food… Do they affect how we eat, play, socialise and think in Barking and Dagenham?
This month we’re *THRILLED* to be joined by long-term friend of the project, collaborator, and ‘Food Champion’ Kiran Chahal from Made Up Kitchen. Kiran will be talking to us about how to grow, sustain and celebrate healthy community-led food actions.
As part of our work with LBBD to build a Good Food Economy, Kiran will be helping us to think about how to grow sustainable, holistic food systems, in Barking and Dagenham and beyond….. We’ll be asking:
Delicious food will be provided by the Good Food Collective.
This event is invite only. If you are a local resident working with, growing, sharing food and you’d like to attend, please email cam on firstname.lastname@example.org.
