  Due to great response, this event is now sold out. We hope to see you at another WFAE event in the future.

From covered dish dinners and coffee shops to Charlotte’s iconic Greek Festival and food truck rodeos at Chow Down Uptown, food brings people together. In WFAE’s next Public Conversation, we’ll explore the Gathering Power of Food on Thursday evening, July 11th at Levine Museum of the New South.

Moderated by Levine Museum’s Tom Hanchett, the discussion will examine food’s role in marking life events and how to preserve its “gathering power” in today’s “fast food society” and busy lifestyles. Panelists include Stephen Crotts, a Rock Hill artist and communal food enthusiast and WFAEats' very own Amy Rogers. Panelists and audience members (that's YOU!)  will also share experiences and observations on how gatherings around food impact neighborhoods, workplaces, churches and other community institutions. Be sure to come early and enjoy Chow Down Uptown, a food truck festival that will be taking place right across the street from Levine Museum. See you there!
