Our Kitchen Table invites you to the 2nd Women of Color Convening, 6 – 9 p.m., Thursday, May 29, Madison Square Church Community Room, 1441 SE Madison Avenue SE, Grand Rapids, MI  49507.

Lila Cabbil, president emeritus of the Rosa Parks Institute, will facilitate a dialogue on food justice. What is your relationship to food? Rekindle the spark and reap the benefits of a long term, committed relationship to good healthy food. No matter who you are or where you live, we all are affected by the food we eat, where it comes from, and how it gets to us.

Enjoy a healthy foods cooking demo with OKT cooking coach, Toni Scott. She will be cooking another recipe from the “Afro-Vegan” cookbook by celebrity eco-chef  and  food justice activist Bryant Terry.

Wait! Does that say “Vegan”? You’re not vegan? No worries! Good cooking and good eating involve many different preparation methods. With diet-related diseases increasing in our communities, vegetarian and vegan options–even some of the time–can help us make meals healthier for ourselves and our families.

Limited seating. RSVP to [email protected] or 616-206-3641. We look forward to cooking with you!
