Do you care about high quality, nutritious, locally grown food?
Gather with the TEDxSanAntonio community to brainstorm ways we can help create a healthy, sustainable, and just local food system in San Antonio that is accessible to all.
This Salon offers a unique, interactive exploration of the issues that prevent San Antonians from having ready access to healthy, fresh foods. We’ll watch some excellent TED talks about the issues and then hear from local people working on the issue from different perspectives, including:
Judit Vega of San Antonio Metro Health
Angela Hartsell of Green Spaces Alliance
Elizabeth Johnson of Crave Market and Mitch Hagney, CEO of Local Sprout
Kerry Meath-Sinkin, “Culinary Medicine, through the seasons and into our community.”
We’ll break around 7:30 pm for a fresh, popup dinner in the garden. A “sustainable chef potluck” in which local chefs will be offering a sample of dishes, chefs include: Jason Dady (Jason Dady Restaurant Group), Brooke Smith (The Esquire Tavern), Steve McHugh (CURED), Elizabeth Johnson (Crave Market), As well as cheese plates from Gaucho Gourmet and Taste Elevated, and cookies by Bakery Lorraine.
After dinner, we’ll reconvene to brainstorm and create action plans for moving San Antonio’s food policy forward. We will enjoy a Short film about our local food policy council by Laura Varela Producer/Director VarelaFilm.org and Andrew Gonzales, Producer, DigestibleMedia.com
