The Blue Review, along with partners Edible Idaho and the Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force, are hosting a potluck and teach-in on food and inequality, the topic of our recent special issue.

Please join us on Friday, October 15, starting at 5:30 pm at Boise State Downtown, 301 S. Capitol Blvd. to discuss contemporary alternative food and agricultural issues through the lenses of gender, immigration, socio-economics, geography and economic history. Several TBR 6 writers will be on hand to present their articles and to lead group discussions on their topics.

Please bring a dish to share if you are able! This event is free and open to the public (children also welcome)!

At the Broken Tables: A Food and Inequality Potluck and Teach-in event, the Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force will also present a signed governor’s proclamation declaring October “Hunger and Food Security Awareness Month.” The proclamation asserts, among other things, that “hunger and food insecurity are serious problems and are recognized as affecting communities and our tribal organizations across this state — not only those who suffer its immediate and direct effects, but all of our society.”

We will present a framed copy of the proclamation to a community food activist at the event.
