We heard about this happening in our own state. We wanted to share the good idea with others.
Create: The Community Meal, from Public Art Saint Paul by Seitu Jones, aims to lower barriers to making healthy food choices. On September 14, 2014, 2,000 people will gather at a ½ mile long table in the middle of Saint Paul’s Victoria Street for a civic dinner table conversation about Food Access, Food Justice, and Healthy Eating.
Arising from the Central Corridor Public Art Plan, Create illuminates how artists and their creative collaborators can transform the urban Food System, considering the cultural, health, environmental and access equity aspects of urban food production, distribution and consumption.
Check out the website for more information – but don’t you just love the idea – healthy food, community conversation and art. Worth attending if you live in the area; perhaps worth replicating if you don't.
