Event Description

Ranwa Hammamy will moderate a conversation about the food justice book group selection Behind the Kitchen Door: What Every Diner Should Know About the People Who Feed You  by Saru Jayaraman at the inaugural Food Justice Book Group table to be held at the church potluck. 

Come join the group to share your opinions about the book or to learn more about this important food justice topic. 

About the book:  

How do restaurant workers live on some of the lowest wages in America? And how do poor working conditions-discriminatory labor practices, exploitation, and unsanitary kitchens-affect the meals that arrive at our restaurant tables? Saru Jayaraman, who launched a national restaurant workers organization after 9/11, sets out to answer these questions by following the lives of restaurant workers in New York City, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Houston, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, Detroit, and New Orleans.   To learn more about this book visitwww.thewelcometable.net/behind-the-kitchen-door/
