2015 "What's for Dinner?" Lecture Series

The Detroit Black Community Food Security Network's 2015 "What's for Dinner?" Lecture Series is moving to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.  Lectures will take place from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. on the third Saturdays of April, June, August and October.  There is no cost for admission.

We are kicking-off the 2015 Series, on April 18, with a lecture by nationally acclaimed author Dr. Jessica B. Harris.  Dr. Harris is the author of twelve cookbooks that share recipes from various parts of the African Diaspora.  Her latest book, "High on the Hog: A Culinary Journey from Africa to America," is a fascinating read that chronicles the influence of Africa on the foodways of America.  Dr. Harris will sign copies of her book immediately following the lecture.

The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is located at 315 E. Warren, Detroit, MI 48202.  For more information call the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network at 313.345.3663.

DBCFSN receives Kellogg Foundation grant

The Detroit Black Community Food Security Network (DBCFSN) has received a three-year grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. DBCFSN will use the grant to support programs, such as D-Town Farm, Summer Urban Ag Internship Program, Annual Harvest Festival, Food Warriors Youth Development Program, What's for Dinner? Lecture Series, the Ujamaa Food Buying Club and our work to create a retail co-op healthy foods store. It also supports our efforts to encourage a policy environment supportive of a robust localized food system.

The programs are funded by a $750,000.00 grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation of Battle Creek, MI and continue the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s longstanding support of DBCFSN and its programs.
