Food and Education in Times of Crisis:
A Bridging Classroom & Community Dialogue
Presented by the Leadership in Edible Education Program
at Antioch University Seattle & EduCulture
Thursday, April 23, 2020, 4-5 p.m.
How do we wrestle with the paradox we are currently experiencing at the cross roads of food supply and kitchen literacy when “(O)ur food distribution networks are under siege. At the same time, food is proving stressful for people who are not used to cooking for themselves” (New York Times 3-18-20)? How do we hold space for the constraints we are experiencing with our food system and supply while creatively addressing short and long term solutions for food and education?
With millions of students at home, schools struggling to create an on-line learning system, and parents struggling to feed and educate their children during a time of crisis, there are significant opportunities emerging for edible education and kitchen literacy on the home front and solutions for making our local-regional food community more relevant in a time of crisis and more durable and resilient for the future.
Join us for a virtual dialogue via Zoom hosted by Antioch University Seattle, facilitated by Leadership in Edible Education faculty & Director Jonathan Garfunkel and feature program alumni and instructors. The dialogue will address the current COVID-19 crisis and its impact on our food systems. Among other topics, we will discuss the constraints to our food system and supply while also imagining creative solutions for a more durable and resilient future. Guests will include local food practitioners, helping to initiate this on-line dialogue.
ONLINE VIA ZOOM – Link and information will be sent prior to meeting date
