7/19/18 Using Food as Resistance

We are looking at all the ways APIs are being defiant…with food. Chefs, vendors, and consumers—they are being the change they want in the way we eat, source, and pay for food. They are even using food as a way to change our perception of other cultures.

Ang Hadwin, founder of FaFa Dumplings



First in this show, we hear from our two guests: Ang Hadwin of FaFa Dumplings, a former food justice advocate who now makes gluten-free dumplings. She is scheming on ways to involve Oakland Chinatown youth in her business.

Ang will be in conversation with queer food photographer and founder of Diaspora Co., Sana Javeri Kadri. Diaspora Co., is a spice collective dedicated to sustainable agriculture, equity, and decolonization within spice trade.

Both will let us know their thoughts on the rise of craft foods and how it can invest in the cultures and communities it borrows from.

Later, you’ll hear stories from Japanese American incarceration from an event hosted by Oakland political educators People’s Kitchen Collective. Some memories are clearly defiant acts of cooking and eating together, and others show trauma, pain, and resilience felt long after incarceration.
