SLEE Dinner 2016

CAGJ’s 11th Annual SLEE Dinner will take place on October 21, 2017 at the University Christian Church. We are very excited to have Ari de Leña, of Kamayan Farm, as our keynote. Ari will talk about Farming for Cultural and Ecological Resilience, sharing how she works to build cultural and ecological resilience by healing the trauma and displacement embedded in the U.S. agricultural system.

This event is more than just a delicious dinner; it is a community gathering in which we aim to raise awareness and educate about how to build healthy food systems as a community-based alternative to corporate-led globalization, make connections across sectors and issues, inspire the community to take action and ensure the long-term sustainability of CAGJ by expanding our membership, developing leadership, and raising significant funds.

There is a silent auction, a dessert auction, and a new mystery bag auction at the dinner. All items and food for the dinner are donated from local farms and businesses. All funds raised are used for CAGJ’s  food justice organizing.

There are lots of ways to be involved beforehand and the day-of. Examples include: Getting the word out about the dinner; Securing donations from local businesses and farms; Serving or prepping food at the dinner. Contact Andrea at [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering.
