Join NPI and Recipe for America author Jill Richardson this Friday

Tired of a food system that puts big corporate profits ahead of consumer safety, family farmers, and our environment?

Then please join us this Friday evening for a conversation with Jill Richardson, industry expert, activist, and author of Recipe for America: Why Our Food System is Borken and What We Can Do To Fix It. Jill has been blogging for years about these issues as OrangeClouds115 on Daily Kos, and her diaries there are undoubtedly familiar to many of our readers.

Here's the details of the event:

We at the Northwest Progressive Institute are pleased to cosponsor this event with Living Liberally, the national progressive social network best known for its organization of Drinking Liberally.

Fx McRory's will be serving a number of vegetarian specials, and even an organic version of its new local cocktail, Finamoré Pineapple Express.

So come by, join us for some very tasty refreshments, meet Jill, and learn what we can all do together to fix our broken food system.

South Sound and Eastside readers can also catch Jill in Tacoma next Saturday at King's Books (3 PM) or in Duvall at the Grange Cafe on the 7th (also 3 PM) for Slow Food Snoqualmie Valley's Labor Day Eat-In.
