SLEE! is a powerful community event that brings together over 300 supporters to inspire people to take action for justice in our local and global food systems. We are responding to the current moment by highlighting the hope embodied by youth on the front lines of the food justice movement.


Tarik Abdullah, an experienced chef and youth educator, will deliver the keynote: "Feed the People: Food, Kids, Community."

Tarik Abdullah teaches two kids as part of his In The Kitchen culinary program

Known for his innovative pop-up restaurants, Tarik is an experienced chef and youth educator. With deep roots in Seattle?s south end, his mission is to "Feed the People? creating community one meal at a time against a backdrop of great music and visual arts. Recently, in response to the widespread impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Abdullah joined The Seattle Kitchen Collective, a group of chefs and restaurants providing meals for free to those in need, no questions asked.

Since SLEE will be held virtually this year, we will not have an in-person dinner as we usually do. Instead, we are partnering with The Kitchen Collective to facilitate donations of food which farmers/fishermen and others always generously provide to CAGJ.
