An Evening with EHNE-Bizkaia
Please join Food First for a special evening of music, dinner and conversation with our special guests EHNE-Bizkaia, the Basque Farmers' Union, honorees of the 2013 Food Sovereignty Prize!
EHNE-Bizkaia has been at the forefront of food sovereignty activism since its formation in 1976, and was a founding member of La Via Campesina. Made up of agricultural organizations from across the Basque Country, EHNE-Bizkaia provides educational and economic support to over 6,000 members in addition to union representation. Because of their innovative work, EHNE-Bizkaia was recently recognized as an honoree for the 2013 Food Sovereignty Prize.
Your ticket includes an evening at SkyHorse Ranch, a beautiful 190-acre sheep and horse ranch, a delicious three-course meal with farm-sourced ingredients provided by Estero Cafe, and wine from Sonoma County wineries. The program will include a live band, Silent Auction*, and presentations by speakers Eric Holt-Giménez, Executive Director of Food First, and representatives of EHNE-Bizkaia.
Hosted in honor of EHNE-Bizkaia, this will be the first Food Sovereignty Tours Fundraising Dinner. Proceeds will support our scholarship program for young farmers and activists!
Don't miss this unique opportunity to connect with the global food movement and support our scholarship program!
*The Silent Auction is part of our scholarship fundraising efforts, so don't forget your checkbook!
**For those that would like a night filled with delicious, local Sonoma County wine, please bring $5 to be paid at the door.
About Our Scholarship Program
Young people, activists and farmers are among the least likely to have the resources to travel. In order to help them connect with their counterparts internationally, we have managed to offer small discounts based on need and merit to 12 participants per tour. But this isn't enough. We believe that young activists and farmers are the future of food system transformation, so help us raise money for our Scholarship fund by participating in this dinner, and make our travel opportunities accessible to them!
