Tedx — Changing the Way We Eat, this Saturday

Posted By on Wed, Feb 9, 2011 at 12:05 PM

It's all about food, the way we grow it, the way we mix it, the way we transport it, the way we eat it.

Here's the press release from Slow Food Charlotte:

“Changing the Way We Eat” will take place February 12, 2011, in New York City.  Join us as we will be streaming the event in real time at our own Charlotte location. The one-day event will highlight several aspects of the sustainable food movement and the work being done to shift our food system from industrially-based agriculture to one in which healthy, nutritious food is accessible to all.

This event will be shown at viewing party events around the country.  Join us for the TEDx lectures as well as conversation and, well, some good things to eat all day long. (Good things most likely being soup, BBQ, bread and something to wash it down).
