Food Literacy for All:“Freedom, Food & Fat: Reclaiming our bodies and our world from oppressive weight hierarchies, as part of anti-racism, environmental justice, and more…”

Marilyn Wann and Chef Fresh
Tuesday, January 25, 2022
6:30-8:00 PM
Virtual
Talk Description: Marilyn Wann invites people to notice anti-fat beliefs and weight hierarchy and then imagine divesting from those oppressive systems. What if thinner ≠ better? What if weight ≠ health? What if people of all sizes could feel at home in our bodies and fully welcome in society?
