SCLT to participate in upcoming ACTION SPEAKS! event

SCLT is thrilled to be a part of the upcoming ACTION SPEAKS event at AS220. Our Executive Director, Katherine Brown, will be on hand to talk about the local food movement happening right here in Providence.

Eat Locally, Think Globally! Chez Panisse and the fresh, local and slooow food revolution!

Action Speaks! Underappreciated Dates That Changed America returns to AS220 at 115 Empire Street in downtown Providence for its 15th season! Come to the second show of the season entitled “What’s Eating Us?” on Wednesday, October 13th at 5:30 p.m. at AS220 to look at the famed Berkeley, California restaurant Chez Panisse and its founder Alice Waters, and to wonder at the changes brought forth by a woman who simply wanted to create a place where you could relax while eating well.

Join host and creative director Marc Levitt and our panelists, Professor Christine Thompson, associate dean of arts and sciences at Johnson and Wales University; Thomas McNamee, author of Alice Waters and Chez Panisse: The Romantic, Impractical, Often Eccentric, Ultimately Brilliant Making of a Food Revolution; Rolando Robledo, who runs two locavore food carts in Cambridge and Boston and is opening a restaurant in Harvard Square; and Katherine Brown, executive director of the Southside Community Land Trust in Providence, an organization committed to the mission of helping people grow food.

Panelists will consider: Is Food Inc. killing our bodies and our souls? Is supporting the planet’s population by “eating local and seasonal” a fantasy? What are the political, social, economic, and health benefits of eating local? Can we envision a world in which we can all afford heirloom tomatoes?
