Share Lunch with New York City Author and Social Entrepreneur Leanne Brown
Algonquin College will be hosting a very special luncheon with New York City author and social entrepreneur Leanne Brown as a fundraiser for the Algonquin Food Cupboard.
Leanne Brown is the author of Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day. Leanne, a Canadian studying food studies in New York, launched an inspiring Kickstarter campaign to print a small batch of cookbooks for those on food stamps. The campaign was looking for just $10,000, but went viral and raised $144,681. The resulting cookbook has now been downloaded for free over 900,000 times and the second print edition was just released in the fall and is a New York Times Best Seller.
Date: March 21, 2016 12:00 PM-2:00 PM
Location: Algonquin College | 1385 Woodroffe Avenue. The AC Hub (2nd Floor, Student Commons), Ottawa, ON K2G 1V8
Admission: Tickets are $25 (includes lunch, hardcopy of the cookbook, and Leanne’s talk). Book signing to follow after the event.
