Tonight I went to a publication party for Our Food, Our Right: Recipes for Food Justice, a food justice resource guide and recipe book created by The Food Justice Project of the Community Alliance for Global Justice (CAGJ). It's an absolutely awesome resource and includes tons of information - everything from climate change & agriculture to urban gardening to local resources and recipes. There's even facts about workplace sexual violence against farmworkers and low-wage immigrant women. I'm still digesting (both literally and figuratively) all the information from their book, but I'll have to keep you updated on what I learn.
CAGJ also had their famous baked kale. And it was the extra curly kind. Yum, baked kale... this organization spoils my taste buds every time I see them. What a good reputation. :)
I also have to do a shout-out for Hidmo at 20th and S Jackson St. I had never been here before, but it was an adorable restaurant with great food and music. They also have delicious vegan food: Injera (a traditional flat, sour, bread) with salad, red lentils, yellow lentils, cabbage, spinach, green beans, and okra. This picture does not do it justice.
