Conversation: Regenerative Farming and Food Policy, with Cafe Gratitude & LACAN
November 24, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Continue your gratitude post-Thanksgiving feast with a conversation about the food we eat. This Saturday, November 24th, from 1 – 3pm join us in the gallery for a conversation about regenerative farming and food policy with Ryland Engelhart and Todd Cunningham in conjunction with our Gratefulness exhibition. This talk is free and open to the public.
Ryland Engelhart is the Chief Inspiration Officer and co-owner of Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre, and co-founder of Kiss The Ground, a non-profit that educates and advocates about the connection between soil, human, and planetary health. He is also a co-creator of the award-winning, transformational documentary film, “May I Be Frank.” He is an entrepreneur and activist, using his restaurants as a platform to inspire more “gratitude” into our culture. He speaks on sacred commerce, tools for building community, and regeneration.
Todd Cunningham is the co-lead for the TeamFood division of LA CAN (Los Angeles Community Action Network). Under Todd’s leadership for the Skid Row Marketplace Farmer’s Market and Rooftop Garden, he oversees a diverse team of food justice advocates focused on creating effective community organizing strategies fueling groundbreaking cooperative response to extreme hunger and food insecurity by providing unprecedented access to the option for fresh, healthy organic produce and its nutritional information. Todd was named ‘Marketer of the Year’ by Brandweek Magazine and prior to coming to LA CAN, was the Founding Director of The Media Impact Project at USC’s Annenberg School of Communications and Journalism and served as the domestic and international SVP of Strategic Insights & Research for MTV.
