Live near Los Angeles? Then come meet your favorite MNN blogger this Sunday! Enjoy an organic brunch while listening to a musical performance — then hear an eco-foodie panel (that I’ll be on) before taking in a screening of The Future of Food.
Dubbed “Peeling Back the Label: Shedding Light on the Food Industry, Misleading Consumer Information and the Impact on Human Health,” this midday event will likely be a lot more upbeat than the official title sounds!
When: Sun., Oct. 4, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Where: Multeepurpose Café, 269 S. San Pedro St., Los Angeles.
Cost: $10 ($5 for brunch, $5 for screening). RSVP required to firstname.lastname@example.org or 310.993.6762.
Peeling Back the Label is the first of the Activist Salon Series put together by Alliance Hollywood, a lobbyist group for the entertainment industry on issues like global warming and education, and Effortless Activism, a company that seeks to make activism simple. Come out to mix and mingle with fellow eco-foodies and activists over an organic brunch catered by Two Peas Catering!
Then starting at noon, I’ll be part of a panel about organic food, sustainable agriculture, and health along with Greg Steltenpohl, founder and former CEO of Odwalla and cofounder of Adina for Life; Felicia Marie Tomasco, editor-in-chief of L.A. Yoga magazine; nutritional counselor Ashley Koff; Mary Papavasiliou, chemical engineer and organizer for the Sierra Club’s True Cost of Food Campaign; and Jessica Vitale, who works on wellness campaigns at Zeno Public Relations Group.
Post-panel will be a film screening of The Future of Food, directed by Deborah Koons Garcia highlighting the compromise of human health and the environment by corporate agriculture. Hope to see you there!
