Where:

Room 205

Event Description:

Join us to educate your palate and your mind during the 5th annual Cultural Studies Food Matters Week involving tastings and talks on food justice around the world. Shelia Madalli from the Sanctuary Restaurant Movement will give a talk on Tuesday, October 17th at 6:30 p.m. in room 205 of Falvey Memorial Library. Sanctuary restaurants have a zero tolerance policy for sexism, racism, and xenophobia, and believe that there is a place at the table for all. Dozens of restaurant employers have signed on to an open letter to President Trump, calling for an end to deportation threats and the harassment of immigrants; advocating for a path to citizenship for these workers. This ACS-approved event, co-sponsored by the Cultural Studies Program and Falvey Memorial Library, is free and open to the public. Delicious food samples will be provided.
