Six Primrose Screening and Panel Discussion
515 Portage Ave, Eckhardt Gramatte Hall Winnipeg, Manitoba
Join NorWest Co-op Community Food Centre for a screening of the new documentary Six Primrose, which tells the story of how food brought a Canadian community together.
For years, the neighbourhood of Dartmouth North has struggled with high rates of food insecurity and isolation. In 2014, the community rallied to build a vibrant Community Food Centre where people come together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food for all.
Filmmaker John Hills was there to capture the changes that ensued: a parking lot transforms into a community garden, an empty building fills with the smells and sounds of people making food together, strangers turn into friends, and together, residents start to push for change.
Join us after the screening for a panel discussion featuring Shailesh Shukla, PhD – Associate Professor U of W, Stephanie Fulford – Gardening and Food Skills Programmer NorWest Co-op CFC, Rob Moquin – Policy Director Food Matters & Chef Ben Kramer – Chef/Owner chefbenkramer.com Custom Catering, on how issues of food insecurity, poverty, and isolation are affecting our community, what we’re is doing to address them, and how you can get involved.
LOCATION: Eckhardt Gramatte Hall, 3rd Floor Centennial Hall, University of Winnipeg
DATE: March 20th
TIME: 7 p.m.
