Just received the following info from Small Potatoes – Pass it on:
Slow Food CNY, working in collaboration with Small Potatoes, is excited to announce it’s Speaker and Film series. The series will consist of 3 events, each to be held at the Red House Arts Center. Each of the events will feature a speaker from the local food system, and a food documentary, followed by a reception at the Red House Cafe. These events are free, open to the public, and begin at 7.
The schedule is as follows:
November 16- speaker: Steve Landon, owner Fennell Street Market
December 14- speaker: Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, Author Cookin’ in the Cuse blog
film: Food Stamped
January 25- speaker: Heather Hawkins- Local Food Advocate

This series is the result of a community effort to strengthen the local food system through networking, collaboration, and education. In February 2011, Slow Food CNY, Small Potatoes, Syracuse Community Test Kitchen and the South Side Innovation Center hosted a simulcast of TEDxManhattan: Changing the Way We Eat conference. Following the event members of the CNYFood System have been hosting meetings and networking events to discuss how to improve the economy, environment, health, and culture of Central New York by improving and celebrating our food.
The speakers were chosen by a jury of food system advocates from Edible Finger Lakes Magazine, B.C. Restaurant, and Syracuse University from candidates nominated by the public.
