About This Event

Join Chef Jonny Rhodes of Food Fight Farms and Broham Soul Food & Groceries and Dr. Ashley Young, Historian of the American Food History Project at the National Museum of American History for a cooking demonstration and lively discussion on the stories food can tell of how communities intersected in our past. Chef Jonny Rhodes is heavily influenced by the history of his hometown in Houston and has made it his mission to bring awareness to past injustices and how African American’s can be better equipped to live a self-sustaining lifestyle.   
Food Fight Farms grows fresh produce with the specific intent of processing those goods into shelf stable foods. The menu will showcase items that have been grown from seed and manufactured into products such as pickles, preserves, condiments and more.
