Date and Time:

Meeting Location: 
Watt Room, Stanford Humanities Center
Workshop: 
Sustenance: Food, Sustainability, and the Humanities
Meeting Description: 

Join us for an evening with Saqib Keval, founder of The People's Kitchen, a sliding-scale, local, organic, community restaurant project that engages, builds and nourishes community through shared-food events and sexy, social and cultural programming.  

Over the past year in Oakland, PK has created a wildly successful monthly, sliding-scale community restaurant that couples political education and movement-building with a delicious, local, organic meal lovingly prepared by community chefs. The all-volunteer crew works with a different grassroots political project or social justice organization each month to curate a menu that highlights and reflects the work of that group. 

PK uses food and recipes as a tool for storytelling and reclaiming community knowledge. We believe that sharing food and building community knowledge are key to the process of decolonization. 

***The Sustenance Workshop looks at the intersection of food and sustainability, highlighting humanistic approaches to the topic. The group seeks to contribute to the Stanford-wide discussion on food studies using history, theory, and art: Can we write and evaluate the historiography of sustainable food? How have literary, visual and performance artists, past and present, represented food as sustenance? What types of economic, social and political theories address food as a global and local resource?***
