The Flour Peddler: A Global Journey into Local Food From Canada to South Sudan

FlourFrom the rainforests of Roberts Creek, BC, to the bustling streets of Kampala, Uganda, and finally onwards to the village of Panlang in South of Sudan, The Flour Peddler is the story of two community-minded entrepreneurs as they set out to build and deliver their bicycle-powered grain mill to a rural women’s cooperative in a tiny village. Through his presentation, Chris will explore the trends and issues of local food systems as well as the challenges and power of alternative food movements.
