In honor of World Food Day, Socrates Sculpture Park, Queens Action Council (QuAC), and City Harvest are hosting a fun, interactive, and educational day of learning, cooking, eating, advocacy, and wellness.

Explore and become a part of the landscape of food justice in Northwest Queens with a variety of community organizations sharing knowledge and resources on nutrition education, food affordability and accessibility, urban farming, planting and gardening, sustainability, and healthy living.

Participating partners include GrowNYC, NYC Compost Project at Big Reuse, Allergic to Salad, Smiling Hogshead Ranch, and Spice Tree Organics.

Join us for activities, conversations, cooking demos, community building, performances like Lauren Hale Biniaris’ dance work-in-process ‘Hungry’ which explores the complicated world of food politics, and more!

Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture will also be activating the Park with site-specific performance from 1-5 PM. !

Presented in partnership with Queens Action Council (QuAC) and City Harvest
