Back in October, around fifty representatives from the New York City area attended the Second Annual Growing Food and Justice Gathering in Milwaukee. On the first night of the conference, author and food activist Bryant Terry hosted a Grub dinner, meant to promote conversation on food justice topics over healthy, mostly local food. Now East New York Farms! has brought the concept back to Brooklyn, and is hosting its own version of a Grub potluck to promote conversations and relationships.
The potluck, which is also BYOU (Bring Your Own Utensils, Plate and Cup), will be held at the United Community Centers, also the home of East New York Farms! (613 New Lots Ave). The event is co-sponsored by Jin's Journey, Food Security Roundtable, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, and the Brooklyn Food Coalition. Any and all urban farmers, gardeners, cooks, chefs, food activists, food bloggers and foodies of Brooklyn are invited to meet fellow food enthusiasts, build new relationships and learn about the food related initiatives taking place in Brooklyn.
The food will center around local and seasonal dishes brought by the guests. Organizers are hoping to compile recipes from contributed food, so if you are interested in attending, write your recipe on an index card and bring it along.
