Thursday April 9th Dinner at 7 pm. Presentations begin at 8 pm. The event is free, but please do bring something to share! “The quest for food security can be the common thread that links the different challenges we face and helps build a sustainable future.”– José Graziano da Silva Spring has sprung! Come share stories and recipes, and learn about what other community members, growers, and organizations are doing to create just and sustainable food systems right here in Western Queens. This April, Flux Thursday is co-hosted by the Queens Action Council (QuAC), The New York City Coalition Against Hunger, City Harvest, Hour Children Community Food Pantry and Flux Factory’s community organizer in residence Gil Lopez. Come hear about the decentralized, collective farming model Hellgate Farm is deploying in Astoria. QuAc members will summarize the recently released NW Queens Community Food Assessment, and we'll learn about upcoming living foods workshops at the Flux Factory and more! Potluck starts at 7 pm, mini workshops at 8 pm. We expect a spectacular showing of food and beverage just like our last food justice roundup, so bring your A-game to the potluck folks! RSVP on Facebook here.
