One Book Food and Community Panel

Culinary Literacy Center
Parkway Central Library
In There There, the kitchen is a site of memory, emotion, and sometimes powerlessness. Join this expert panel for a conversation about cultural foodways—how what we eat intersects with culture, traditions, and history. Discussion will examine how access and control over food production and preparation can shape community well-being and belonging.
Panelists include Jena Annise (J.A.) Harris, a Black, Queer, Femme, Chef and Organizer who brings her love of a shared meal together with social justice work through the projects foodeveryonedeserves (f.e.d.), the Free Breakfast Program and Wholistic Art's Free Brunch Program; Hannah Holby, a farmer and educator at Henry’s got crops, the farm that works with W.B. Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences; Laura Lagunez, Natives at Penn advisor and a Public Health graduate student of Navajo and Nahua Mexican ancestry who works to bridge cultural narratives with the public health sector; and Toyce Holmes (Muscogee/Creek Nation), the program coordinator for Penn's First-Generation, Low-Income Center.
