About the Series
Join us for collaborative exploration of the nutritional and cultural significance of local and traditional foods with Native leaders in our community. We are honored to partner again this year with local members of Indigenous-led organizations Dream of Wild Health, Division of Indian Work, Gatherings Café, and American Indian Family Center to share their knowledge through a series of cooking and lecture workshops.
These six classes will all focus on a different recipe using traditional ingredients. We will learn how to make delicious meals, drinks, medicines and desserts as instructors share their expertise on sourcing, sustainability, and the environmental impacts on local and native-grown foods.
The event series “Co-op Community Conversations: Exploring the Intersection of Racial, Social, and Food Justice” is presented by Seward Community Co-op, Eastside Food Co-op, Mississippi Market Food Co-op, and Twin Cities Co-op Partners as a way to examine and connect our cooperative values with social justice movements.
All classes are being held virtually for free.
