Soul food lies at the heart of African American cultural identity. The black community's love affair with sould food is deep-rooted, complex and in some cases, deadly. Soul Food Junkies puts this culinary tradition under the mircoscope to examine both its significance and it's consequences. There will be a brief Q&A afterwards.

Please join food justice farmer/longtime community food educator Yonnette Fleming and explore the power of greens,learn and identify some well known and lesser known greens that provide great nutrition for the body and prepare a simple,healthy,delicious collard greens stir-fry.
