About

Do you know where your food comes from? Why is fresh food available in some communities, and not others? Join DC EcoWomen on Saturday, November 14th  at 12 pm for a day at the Anacostia Community Museum to view the Food for the People: Eating and Activism in Greater Washington exhibition.

Take a deep dive into the food issues of the nation’s capital—past and present—with this outdoor and indoor exhibition featuring artifacts, art installations, videos, and hands-on interactives. 

This event is open to all people who identify as women, spouses and families are welcome. After viewing the exhibition we welcome everyone to join us at Busboys and Poets Anacostia 2021 14th St, NW, Washington, D.C. 20009 for an informal discussion on our thoughts on the exhibit, to discuss some of our own experiences with food apartheid and or food privilege's.
