Slow Food Conversation on Race, Gender, and Food Justice

Tuesday, November 19, 2019
2 Bow Market Way
Somerville, MA 02143
United States

Join a lively conversation to hear about local initiatives to pay food service workers and suppliers a fair wage/price and provide benefits to employees. We'll also get insights and hear first-hand about the challenges faced by restaurant owners to account for dozens of overhead costs that are often obscured from diners. Guest speakers will also discuss tipped employee minimum wage, open book management, worker owned co-ops, and the fight for $15. Please join and take part in a thoughtful discussion about how the Slow Food community can work collectively to develop a more equitable food system that can afford to pay a living wage. 

Enjoy complimentary appetizers provided by Mei Mei and grab a beer in tune with the seasons and current trends from Remnant Brewery. Additional food will be available for purchase. Space is limited so advance RSVP is required.
