Event description
Join us on the eve of World Food Day, during Global Climate Change Week to celebrate our thriving fair food community!

About this Event

Our actions are our future!

Get inspired, encouraged and nourished amongst other local fair food champions, as we connect and consider how we can make healthy and sustainable diets available and affordable to everyone.

The evening will feature a number of expo stalls, interactive demonstrations, the screening of the brand new and inspiring film 2040 (Damon Gameau, the director of That Sugar Film), and a panel of local guest speakers.

All while enjoying some local and ethically sourced food.

Connecting over Fair Food takes a "Contribute as you can" approach with all donations from the night supporting future Food Fairness Illawarra events to fuel the Fair Food conversation through events like this.

Places are limited, so bookings essential.

Achieving Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger is more than just addressing hunger. And there are many opportunities to get involved in changing the food system together, so we look forward to connect with you.

Quote from last years’ Connecting Over fair Food

“I liked the bringing together of passionate community members and groups. The range of speakers demonstrated the breadth of action that is happening in this area in our region. The expo stalls also demonstrated this and were set up in a good way that allowed you to easily circulate and speak to people. Of course, the food was delicious too!”
