Chefs Speak at Our Foodways Event

Long Beach Fresh is pleased coordinate free food learning event series at Compound Long Beach called Food For Thought! The family-friendly series brings local experts in food sustainability, gardening, healthy cooking, and local food cultures to the table.

The event series takes place on Fourth Fridays. It kicked off with the theme “Scrap to Soil,” then shifted to a seed workshop with Farm Lot 59. The third workshop brought local chefs, educators and community members together to learn about child nutrition innovation.

So what’s next?

Our Foodways is on Friday, October 22nd from 4-5:30 pm at Compound Long Beach!

It features short talks from eight local food chefs, creators, and change-makers, followed by a mixer and some tastes of their creations.

Speakers and participants will reflect on Foodways, understood as the intersection of food in culture, history, and tradition.

“It’s a rich topic to explore! There’s a value to taking a glimpse behind the plate, and understanding why food means so much to us,” explains LB Fresh Co-Director Tony Damico. “Whether food innovation is influenced by migration, family recipes, political oppression, or the complexities of growing up in Long Beach, learning about these influences great way to deepen appreciation and support within our local food scene.”
