Connection in a Disconnected World

Learn how to support communities in becoming self-sufficient and food secure.

Join TEDxOmaha at KANEKO on Monday, April 17, at 6 pm for an interactive discussion on the Physiological level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, which covers the basic need for food. For many, food is an essential security and safety need. However, providing access to food is only the beginning; it is also a discussion about humanity, dignity, and empowerment. Nancy Williams is the co-founder and president of No More Empty Pots, a non-profit whose mission is to connect individuals and groups to improve self-sufficiency, regional food security, and economic resilience of urban and rural communities through advocacy and action. Nancy will join us for serious conversations on food security in our communities.

KANEKO is located at 1111 Jones Street in Downtown Omaha.

PARKING: There are a few metered spots alongside the building on Jones. It is recommended that you park at the garage on 10th & Jackson Street.

About TEDxOmaha
TEDxOmaha is an independently organized TEDx event. As a part of the global TED community, we connect locally to explore the ideas and situations that affect our cultures, environments, and minds. Most people are introduced to this remarkable collection of human experiences through recorded TED Talks. Through technology, we can hear stories of discovery, heartache, joy, introspection, and imagination from some of the world’s most amazing people. By creating events in Omaha, we produce an experience based on TED’s principles.

Who attends TEDxOmaha? Five hundred of our community’s most curious, forward-thinking people. Activists, artists, philanthropists, modern-day philosophers, policymakers, stay-at-home parents, and more. You, too, can gather with amazing people from our region who share their insights and accomplishments. It helps us witness what is happening – and what is possible – so we can be inspired to take bigger steps together. TEDxOmaha is held annually in October and offers monthly TEDxOmahaSalon events at KANEKO.
