FOOD: Four Short Talks
Sharing. Creating. Culture. Community.
Food is more than nourishment. It’s a way to make connections and a reflection of our community. How we approach food has implications for the public good — raising wide-ranging questions about cultural and civic identity, social justice and government.
Explore this topic with us at Kakao/415 Westlake at 415 Westlake Ave. N, Seattle. Mix, mingle and hear perspectives — from the worlds of cooking, eating, business and urban design — about how food builds community.
