    Help to Fight Food Insecurity at the Annual Good Food For All Conference

    by Suzanna U.

    Here at the Culinary Literacy Center, we use food as a lens to see and experience the world around us. Unfortunately, the food system we take part in can also mirror larger societal inequities. For far too many Philadelphia residents young and old, everyday experiences with food include inconsistent access to adequate nourishment. According to a study released in 2018 by Hunger Free America, food insecurity affects 1 in 5 Philadelphians.

    Now in its fifth year, our annual Good Food For All Conference welcomes hunger fighters, food educators, people who are facing food insecurity, and advocates for food access on Thursday, May 9 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The conference includes a wide variety of offerings including food demonstrations, panels, and workshops. Presented by the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger and the Free Library of Philadelphia's Culinary Literacy Center, the conference will offer opportunities to learn about eating well on a budget, reducing food waste, self-care for providers, food workers' rights and more.

    We are excited to announce this year’s keynote speaker, Neftali Duran, chef, advocate, educator, and organizer, working toward an equitable food system. Neftali is a Salzburg Global Fellow, and co-founder of the I-Collective, an indigenous collective that promotes a healthy food system that values people, traditional knowledge, and the planet over profit. His writing and culinary projects have been featured at the Smithsonian Native American Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of American History, the Native American Culinary Association, LongHouse Food Revival, Food52, and the Cooking Channel. He has also been a featured speaker on The Moth Mainstage, Harvard University, Smith College and more. Come learn more about how Neftali’s larger contributions to building equity can impact Philadelphia’s eaters.
