Produced by #bossbabesATX, SHE TALKS is an ongoing discussion-based personal and professional development series, tackling topics from finances to intersectional feminism. In this session, we’ll hear from four women-identifying professionals in different sectors of the food and service industry, exploring the development of their careers and their personal passions for food.
We are what we eat, both literally and figuratively. Whether you're sitting down to eat a meal with your family or blogging about brunch, your food is just as much a part of your culture as it is your survival—and your relationship to what’s on your plate intersects with those who make it, those who grow it and those who market it. Join us for a discussion at the Sustainable Food Center on Nov. 13 from 6:30 to 9 PM, featuring four different women in Austin's food and service industry, as we journey through their careers and their personal/political relationships to food.

SFC's mission is to cultivate a healthy community by strengthening the local food system and improving access to nutritious, affordable food. SFC envisions a food-secure community where all children and adults grow, share, and prepare healthy, local food. From seed to table, SFC creates opportunities for individuals to make healthy food choices and to participate in a vibrant local food system. Through organic food gardening, relationships with area farmers, interactive cooking classes and nutrition education, children and adults have increased access to locally grown food and are empowered to improve the long-term health of Central Texans and our environment.
