Eat Local, Taste Global Book Launch

End Date: 9/26/2017End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:

Please join Wilfrid Laurier University Press authors Glen C. Filson and Bamidele Adekunle to launch their new book Eat Local, Taste Global: How Ethnocultural Food Reaches Our Tables.

Eat Local, Taste Global: How Ethnocultural Food Reaches Our Tables shows how the demand for ethnocultural vegetables on the part of Toronto’s South Asian, Chinese, and Afro-Caribbean Canadians is at odds with the corporate food regime. How does that regime affect the local food movement and ethnic groups’ access to their preferred foods? This book addresses that question and suggests that the protection of ethnic and national food security and sovereignty strengthens immigrant integration while producing healthy crossover effects for other Canadians. The authors will do a brief presentation and lead a discussion about issues addressed in the book.

Refreshments Provided. Free of Charge. All are welcome.
