CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture), the educational nonprofit behind the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, is unveiling The Food Change, a bold new project championing farmers, advocates, and everyday people who are making positive change in our food system.
Through a larger-than-life public art installation at San Francisco’s iconic Ferry Building with portraits by photographer Anne Hamersky, a companion website (thefoodchange.org), and live educational events, The Food Change will engage thousands of visitors in creating a fair, regenerative, and delicious food future.
CUESA is unveiling The Food Change at the Ferry Building at two celebratory events next week, featuring project participants. Additional talks, tours, and parties are planned throughout the year.
- Wednesday, January 30, 5:30-8pm: Cheers to Change Makers: Winter Cocktails of the Farmers Market
- Saturday, February 2, 11:30-1pm: The Food Change Big Reveal
From climate change to food access, The Food Change covers a broad range of urgent food, environmental, and social issues, featuring farmers, food makers, and activists such as Shakirah Simley (Nourish|Resist), Judith Redmond (Full Belly Farm), Mai Nguyen (California Grain Campaign), Monica Martinez (Don Bugito), and other change makers working toward solutions.
“The Food Change shines a bright light on people fighting for a better food system and invites everyone to take part,” says Nina Ichikawa, Policy Director of the Berkeley Food Institute, who appears on the “Food Democracy” panel of The Food Change.
