Share a traditional Nigerian meal with us on Monday, Oct. 23, at the co-op's Annual Owner Meeting, in the Great Hall (Room G-26) located on the ground floor of the University of Minnesota’s Coffman Union (300 Washington Ave. SE). There will be live jazz music and a performance by Appetite for Change, followed by an open dialogue on the real cost of food led by Diversity and Community Engagement Manager LaDonna Sanders-Redmond and guest chef Tunde Wey. We will also share the results of the board of directors election, and announce the upcoming 2018 SEED recipients.

Join the conversation surrounding the complicated relationship between food and labor and contribute your thoughts as to how we, as individuals and owners of the co-op, can work together to create a sustainable and just food system wherein everyone involved in growing, producing or serving our food is paid fairly.

$5 in advance; $15 at the door. Purchase tickets here.
