Let’s Build Longer Tables, Not Higher Walls: Food, Cultural Connections, and Community Empowerment

October 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Food has the power to bridge cultures, empower communities, and ultimately change the world. In this presentation, Dr. Cristina Carrasco will explore the power for food to bring us together, especially during moments of crisis. Highlighting international examples of activist chefs who have made food the centerpiece of their humanitarian work (including José Andrés, founder of World Central Kitchen), Dr. Carrasco will encourage us to “build longer tables, not higher walls.”

This event is free and open to the public, and will be held in collaboration with Cape Fear Community College.
