The Chattanooga Sustainable Food Center Hosts Community Potluck Nov. 12

And 6 Personal Food Histories

Tuesday, November 5, 2019

The Chattanooga Sustainable Food Center presents a food storytelling event scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 6 p.m.

In the spirit of the gathering season, share in the stories of six Chattanoogans, a cross cultural panel of speakers, some who have long called Chattanooga home and others that arrived a bit later. Each speaker will present their individual food history and how those memories have shaped their lives today.

The new nonprofit organization, the Chattanooga Sustainable Food Center will introduce itself and share a vision and hope for the future of food in Chattanooga.

The option to bring a dish to share is encouraged but not required to attend.

Holly Martin, founder says, "the Southeast continues to be enriched by a determined preservation of our Southern food heritage while also making way for new food cultures and culinary experiences. It's a very exciting time to be living in this region, but we also face the challenge of the increasing disconnect to the land and people that grow our food. With the resources and talent all around us, the agricultural and culinary possibilities for the Chattanooga area are limitless. We will be a better city if we continue to cultivate those connections."

The event is supported in part by a Causeway Nano Grant that seeks to make the city a better place to live for everyone. Admission to the event is free and open to the public.
