The Hudson Grocery Cooperative will host a free to the public TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” Viewing Party on Saturday, March 1 at the River Falls Public Library from 12:30-4pm. The event includes a free lunch from Chipotle. We will show Session 2: Collaborate featuring food and farming experts.
The independently organized event will gather speakers and audience members from diverse backgrounds to create new synergies, connections, and collaborations across disciplines. The goal of the event is to help break the food movement out of its bubble and introduce the TED/TEDx audience and viewers across the country to the innovative work being done to elevate the food system to one that is more equitable, healthier, and sustainable for all.
