Landworkers Alliance Midlands are hosting an event (with Lou Aphramor of Agroecology Dept, Coventry University)looking at food choices, balancing the decisions we make around what we want, what we should eat - and what's good for the planet and other people.
Monday 26th June 6pm online
"How do we make sense of food values when public health message emphasise nutrients? Are you sometimes uneasy with your own food choices? However absurd we find the binary of good/bad and healthy/unhealthy it can still impact how we think and feel about food, health and our bodies.
Yet it can be hard to find spaces to have conversations where personal wellbeing and collective liberation are both on the menu. If you are interested in exploring the logic that underpins nutrition confusion, food guilt, and body shame and building an alternative grounded in inter-connection and equity please join us!
