What is Dinner and Some Ed?
Dinner and Some Ed is an effort to raise awareness, and enjoyment, of local, sustainable food. All you need to do is host a meal made from local, sustainable food and show a few videos - we suggest watching TEDTalks both on TED.com and the TEDx Channel. The videos will focus on food and farming.
The dinner can be potluck style, where friends and family participate in making the meal by bringing one dish or beverage; it can be prepared, cooked, and served by the host(s); or it can be a combination thereof. Visit our What To Do page for ideas on what you can do.
“Dinner” is a relative term - this can also be done as a brunch, lunch or picnic. The key is to have a computer or mobile device where you can watch the talks, as well as some delicious sustainable food. Find out the types of meals you can host.
