I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).
Early in March, I put out a call for information about agriculture, food, or nutrition coalitions working toward improving the food system in one way or another.
I did this because I think that if the thousands of organizations working on food issues are to gain real political power, they will need to unite around common goals. Coalitions are a good way to begin.
So many responses came in that I recruited an NYU undergraduate student, Jennie Dockser, to put them in some kind of order, collect missing information, and try to make sense of them.
I did some editing of what she gave me, but here is a list of the coalitions I now know about. Take a look.
Perhaps your organization can join?
