Slow Food NYC Food Almanac 2016 - Food and Farm Wages, Exploring Pay Equity in our Food System
Brooklyn Winery
Brooklyn, NY
Share this event:

Since 1818, farmers have relied on the Farmers' Almanac for homey wit and uncannily accurate weather predictions to inform their planting, harvesting, and day-to-day living.  In 2016, Slow Food New York City, continuing a Food Systems Network NYC tradition, will sponsor the Sixth Annual Food Almanac, a food and farming prognostication inspired by the Farmers' Almanac.  

The Food Almanac is a singular opportunity for food-active individuals to consider a food and farming policy issue for the New Year. Slow Food NYC believes in Good, Clean, and Fair Food for All, including those who labor to put food on our tables;farmers, ranchers, fishers, processors, and distributors.  This year, a panel including farmers, a restaurateur, advocates, and a policy maker will speculate on an incredibly important aspect of food and farming - financial compensation for those laboring in the food system.  What does the Fight for $15 in Fast Food mean for the larger food system, including our small-scale family farmers and farm workers?  How do we create a more equitable pay scale for front and back of house restaurant workers?  What does the no-tipping movement mean for restaurateurs and diners?  How can family farmers afford to continue operating their farms when labor costs rise?  Can food prices rise, and what would be the impact on our most vulnerable eaters?  The Food Almanac is NOT just Food for Thought.  Attendees also will enjoy networking, local wine and beer, and delicious seasonal snacks at Brooklyn Winery.
