Description

As part of Yarra Libraries’ Food, Family and Culture series of food talks and cooking demonstrations, we welcome Laura from The Community Grocer to Fitzroy Library on Wednesday 16 August.

The Community Grocer Fitzroy launched on Tuesday 28 March 2017, joining existing enterprises in Carlton, Fawkner and Mernda. With over 23,000 customers to date, The Community Grocer, a non-profit, aims to improve access for people living on a low-income to fresh, affordable food, running weekly fruit and vegetable markets where everyone is welcome.

Laura will introduce The Community Grocer from its background and operations to goals and plans for the future. With food at the very heart of all cultures and taking a central role in shaping and maintaining our cultural identities, she will discuss the important political distinction between 'food security' and 'food sovereignty' and how it relates to preserving culture through food.

Laura will share recipes from customers and serve up a popular Sudanese dish of peanut salad!

Bookings essential. You do not need to bring a ticket with you to this event.
