FoodSpark kicks off its first series of 2019 to hold brave space for community members to reflect and discuss current social and political issues that are being faced across our local, national, and global contexts.
Events for this Series
After an awesome kickoff to our series on social and political topics, the FoodSpark team invites you to join us for a fun evening of conversation and printmaking as we gather to continue engaging hot topics.
This event sets brave space for us to voice to our feelings - our anger, frustration, sadness - and second, making sure that we are taking care of ourselves as individuals and as a community. Come share what’s on your mind at this moment and bring a dish that’s bringing you comfort. This month's culinary theme is "casserole."
