Connecting Over Fair Food

Food Fairness

Come along to connect with other foodies and celebrate national Fair Food week, while enjoying local and ethically sourced food from The Red Kitchen and The Pines Kiama.

The theme for this year’s Connecting Over Fair Food is ‘Together shaping the future’ with a focus on exploring the question ‘How do we best equip the next generation to enjoy good food and create a sustainable food future?’ There will be a panel of speakers, a range of expo stalls, and the opportunity to contribute to the Fair Food poster wall.

Connecting Over Fair Food takes a “Pay As You Feel” approach with a sliding scale starting at $10. All donations support future Food Fairness Illawarra events to fuel the Fair Food conversation!

Places are limited and bookings essential at www.foodfairnessillawarra.org,au or call Healthy Cities Illawarra on 4283 8111.
