TEDx Manhattan – Changing the Way We Eat

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 10.17.03 PMIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” will take place on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at the Times Center in New York City. It runs from 10:30 AM to 6:30 PM. To apply to attend, please fill out the online form.   Please note: due to the overwhelming response to the event, applying does not guarantee admittance. We will respond to each application to let you know if we are able to accommodate you at the event.  If we cannot accommodate you, we encourage you to host or attend a viewing party. TEDxManhattan viewing parties are a great way to bring people together to mingle, eat and learn.

Documentary Screening: FOOD CHAINS

poster212x312FOOD CHAINS SCREENING WITH PANEL DISCUSSION / RECEPTION /MEET THE FILMAKER

Cinema Arts Centre  – Huntington
Sunday, March 1st – 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM

Co-presented by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Huntington and Slow Food North Shore

In this expose, an intrepid group of Florida farm workers battle to defeat the $4 trillion global supermarket industry through their ingenious Fair Food Program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve toxic labor conditions for US farm workers.

Food Chains reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like supermarkets and fast food operators. Executive producers Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser expose this lack of corporate accountability to the unwitting consumer in order to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a more humane, transparent food chain.

A panel discussion will ensue featuring Nathan Berger of the Rural Migrant Ministry; Jeremy Cruz – a professor of theology and religion from St. John’s University; Rabbi Rachel Kahn-Troster of T’ruah – a representative from the CIW Fair Food Alliance; Rosa Niave Kenny – a former migrant child field laborer now teaching in Brentwood with a Doctorate from Dowling College; and Anita Halasz (moderator) – Executive Director of Long Island Jobs with Justice.

Join us for a post-panel reception with film maker Sanjay Rawal in the Sky Room.

Food Almanac 2015 – Climate Change, Agriculture, and Resilience

Tuesday, February 3, 2015
6:30pm to 9:30pm

Since 1818, farmers have relied on the Farmers’ Almanac for homey wit and uncannily accurate weather predictions to inform their planting, harvesting, and day-to-day living. In 2015, Slow Food New York City, continuing a Food Systems Network NYC tradition, will sponsor the fifth annual Food Almanac, a food and farming prognostication inspired by the Farmers’ Almanac.

The Food Almanac is a singular opportunity for food-active individuals to consider all things food and farming in the New Year. This year, a panel of farmers, scientists, and policymakers will speculate on an incredibly important aspect of food and farming – “Climate Change, Agriculture, and Resilience.”

While the topic is sobering, not all will be food for thought! Attendees also will enjoy local wine, beer, and seasonal snacks.

Moderator: Jennifer G. Phillips, Gansvoort Farm and Bard Center for Environmental Policy

Panelists:

  • Joseph Musso, Senior Program Manager, Agency Resiliency, NYC Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency
  • Sacha Spector, Conservation Biologist, Scenic Hudson
  • Bina Venkataraman, Director of Global Policy Initiatives, Broad Institute and Op-Ed Columnist, The Boston Globe
  • Amanda Andrews, Farmer, Tamarack Hollow Farm
  • Gwen Schantz, Urban Farmer, Brooklyn Grange CEO

Proceeds from this unique, informative, and fun event, produced by the SFNYC Food and Farm Policy Committee, will benefit the not-for-profit Slow Food NYC Urban Harvest program of support for the good food education of New York City children at 16 schools around the City and on an educational, urban farm in East New York, Brooklyn. Urban Harvest activities include edible school gardens, cooking classes, field trips, good food courses, and student run “farmstands” offering fresh, local produce to school and neighboring communities.

Celebrate Mother Earth

Slow Food International Terra Madre Day

International Terra Madre Day is December 10th, but Slow Food North Shore will be celebrating it on December 9th at our local cinema.  During our celebration we will share with you a short video about Terra Madre in Italy and the community that makes it so special, while enjoying some local foods prepared by Slow Food members.

Terra Madre Day is an opportunity to celebrate “Mother Earth” and highlight local foods that are at risk of disappearing.  One of Slow Food’s many programs is their Ark of Taste which identifies those foods along with the cultures and techniques related to their production and use, in an attempt to catalogue and preserve them.  We invite you to nominate an endangered product in your area into the Ark of Taste.
