Real Food Real Stories (RFRS) is proud to present our fourth annual Storyslam, taking place on Thursday, March 25 5:00-6:30pm PDT in living rooms across the country. A digital gathering and fundraiser, Storyslam 2021: Recipes for Resilience will feature live stories from visionary leaders in food from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

It’s been a trying year of countless challenges, rapid-fire transformation, and incredible resolve for our friends in food. Join us in the midst of this critical moment for an evening of celebration, reflection, and community. All proceeds from the event will benefit the RFRS Resilience Fund, which provides microgrants to food changemakers facing the devastating impacts of the pandemic and California wildfires. Tickets and curated treats & meal kit offerings are on sale now.

Hosted by Jocelyn Jackson, the evening will feature stories by Chef Sarah Kirnon of Miss Ollie’s and Sanctuary, organizer and sommelier Vinnie Eng of SF New Deal, third generation farmer and farmworker advocate Rudy Jimenez of Green Thumb Organics, Nomtipom Wintu ethnobotanist and medical herbalist Sage LaPena, and shepherd and volunteer firefighter Ruthie King.

Go beyond the headlines to hear personal stories served straight up from food leaders in our community. We hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be a powerful gathering of friends, food, and story as we come together to question what resilience means in this moment.
