Artists and activists will prepare and share foods that carry a story of the nuanced practices of erasure embedded in the colonial project in Palestine. Join them on our doorstep for food and conversation!
Apartheid practices affect Palestinian food sovereignty, access to water and agricultural land, ancestral practices of wild forging—all essential to the food on the table. Let's eat together and find out how we can fair trade for Palestine.
