SFA Summer Foodways Symposium spotlights Richmond this month

The Southern Foodways Alliance‘s 2013 Summer Foodways Symposium will take place in Richmond (and Charlottesville) on June 20-22, 2013. Titled “Women, Work, and Food”, the event will showcase women entrepreneurs, cooks, waitresses, bakers, and more:

Instead of focusing on women as stewards of hearth and home, we are telling stories of women who began their working lives at home and on the farm, but leveraged those skills to join the entrepreneurial class and drive local economies.
