CAGJ's annual Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere! (SLEE) Dinner is our most important fundraiser and community event of the year! And volunteers make it happen! Join our amazing group the week or night of the dinner, where you will meet great people all dedicated to the same cause: Food Justice and Food Sovereignty for all! And we'll have a fun after-party too.
