Join Nick Saul and Andrea Curtis at the launch of The Stop: How the Fight for Good Food Transformed a Community and Inspired a Movement. Nick and Andrea will share stories from The Stop, lead a lively discussion on food politics and community-building, and chronicle how The Stop's innovative approach to food justice is inspiring a movement of Community Food Centres across the country.
Presentation en anglais. Discussion bilingue.
"The Stop is an inspiring true story about how a low-income neighbourhood used good food to take charge of its community—it's a great lesson for all of us." — Jamie Oliver
"Amid a glut of food manifestos and local-food edicts, this title stands out as an important contribution to the discussion around food and social justice. What’s more, its publication comes at a critical time: Saul and his crew are taking the model on the road with plans to make it a national movement." — Maclean's
Co-presented by Santropol Roulant, Food Secure Canada, the McGill Sustainability Office, NDG Food Depot, the McConnell Foundation and Random House Canada and Community Food Centres Canada.
