With a focus on food, from where it comes from to how to share it, this event opens with a casual reception in the Annex featuring an array of dishes from Red River students and other Winnipeg-based food-conscious organizations.

Spur then engages Kreesta Doucette, executive director of Food Matters Manitoba, Shaun Loney, founder and executive director of BUILD Inc. and Warm Up Winnipeg, and David Northcott, Executive Director of Winnipeg Harvest on the centrality of food to sustain and enrich our daily lives. So often taken for granted, food not only keeps us alive, it creates communities, economies, divisive politics and diverse cultures. Come break bread with us find out why the responsibility to feed and the right to food are about more than just basic nutrition.

Arthur Anyaduba will provide a short performance prior to this event.
