Come hear Niti Bali, Exec Dir of Farm to Fork Meat, speak about finding independence from the industrial food system. Lunch included.Niti Bali, who lost her daughter to the damaging side effects of cancer, resolved to find the best food as a matter of personal conviction. Running up against countless regulations between her and her farmers, she did in fact launch a food church to create space for freedom of food choice in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. She will walk us through the foundational thinking that allowed her to circumvent the institutionalized structure resulting in this highly innovative unlicensed food model.What to expect:-This discussion will be based around sourcing meat and mushroom cultivation.-It will be an interactive discussion with the audience members to discuss health issues and how food is our ultimate medicine. The lecture will introduce the basics around the industrial food system and teach methods in which to source clean food outside of the system.-After the lecture, lunch will be served! Lunch will include Niti's clean-sourced Carnivore Stew, tea and garden-sourced roasted veggies.There will be more lectures on Gaining Health Independence with Niti Bali each month, focusing on new topics. Keep an eye out on our Eventbrite page or Facebook page.More About Niti Bali:Niti Bali is the Founder and CEO of Farm to Fork Meat Riot, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving as a catalyst for reestablishing the regenerative small family farm food system. Her strategically designed CSA program educates eaters to harness the power of life giving force through regenerative foods. Niti’s Farm to Fork Meat Riot CSA simultaneously supports regenerative livestock production based on consumption that results in a zero-waste system. This balanced program allows farmers, ranchers and artisans to operate with less risk and earn fair wages while growing their operations organically to fit the natural demand for this higher quality food.Niti’s passion for sharing regenerative food began after her 2-year- old daughter was diagnosed with Esthesioneuroblastoma in 2007. Meenakshi underwent 5 rounds of toxic chemotherapy that did not stop the cancer. As a mother fighting for her child’s life, Niti embarked on a holistic mission to source the cleanest, most regenerative foods from local farms. Although Niti cured Meenakshi’s cancer with real nutrient dense food, the damage to her vital structures from the chemo was too great and Meenakshi died September 13, 2009.Since then, Niti has made it her mission to protect her family and others from the corporate food system. Niti is developing regenerative farmers and regenerative consumers while producing educational media in the way of her podcast and interview show. She lives in Raleigh, NC with her husband and 2 surviving children and continues to challenge us one bite at a time.
