Food For Thought – Stories About Rediscovering Our Connection to Food

Minoo asked me to share a free event coming up on the 31st May 2012. from 6:30PM to 8:00PM in the performance hall, 7700 Minoru Gate.

The event is organised by the Richmond Food Security Society and the Richmond Public Library. It’s a night of food storytelling featuring a diverse panel of distinguished foodies. There’s a growing interest in what we eat, where it comes from and how to grow your own food.

“The Richmond Food Security Society wants to share these amazing stories about food and Asian perspectives,” says Colin Dring, Executive Director of Richmond Food Security Society. “We have a lot to learn from traditional diets and how they relate to food issues such as health, economics and poverty.”

Among the panels are:

Warren Bell is a general practitioner with over a decade of medical experience and works in understanding the connection between healthy living and food.

Stephanie Yuen is a seasoned food and travel journalist well known for her print and online publications such as ‘Beyond Chopsticks.’

Jose Sarabia is a an accomplished local organic farmer and agrologist with extensive experience growing rice in the Philippines.
