WATCH THE WEBCAST WITH US, LIVE FROM NEW YORK CITY, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2013
We're sponsoring, in partnership with The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and the Standard Club, this amazing viewing party - one of the very few in the greater Philadelphia area!
There will be door prizes drawn- generously donated by TedXManhattan sponsors!
TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” is a full day of talks broken into three sessions exploring the state of our food system and our progress toward sustainability. You don't need to attend the entire event! Come and go as you please. The session will run from 10 until 5:15 so there will be plenty of opportunity to drop in.
Location: The Standard Club 127 East State Street Doylestown, PA 18901. The Standard club is a private club for members and their guests. Attendees will be guests of the Doylestown Food Co-op.
You're welcome to bring your own dish, but locally sourced food prepared by Chef Justin McClain will be available for purchase, with profits going to Ridgecrest Pediatric Services.
Here's the schedule the day!
