There is a lot of great food and drinks in the Dallas area — but there is also a lot of hunger. Join us for an online discussion of food insecurity and scarcity, why those problems persist and the historical inequalities and economic conditions contributing to them.
We’ll be joined by representatives of four organizations — a South Dallas farm, Dallas’ first community fridge, a food bank and the Dallas College Foundation — fighting to provide food to those who need it and to bring greater equity to Texas neighborhoods through food supply.
This event is free and open to the public.

This event is part of the Common Book series presented by Dallas College North Lake Campus. The common book, “Notes From a Young Black Chef” by Kwame Onwuachi and Joshua David Stein, looks at the restaurant world from the eyes of an outsider who had to fight with a tenacity to live out his dream of becoming an innovative chef.
