Food Rebels and Smart Cookin' Mamas: Fighting Back in the Age of Industrial Agriculture

Even while local food systems are careening into mainstream American culture, today's economic climate is also prompting a brand new segment of the American population to utilize food stamps and other measures against increasing hunger. How do we confront the obstacles to realizing a sustainable food system with fairness and sensitivity? Food insecurity expert Mark Winne, author of Closing the Food Gap as well as former Executive Director of the Hartford Food System, will speak on these and other community food system topics including local and regional agriculture, community food assessment, and food policy. Reception to follow.

Where: Campbell Hall, Room 158

When: Tuesday, April 6, 5:30-6:30pm

  1. In terms of food systems, I do think there's really no greater issue beyond it. Though in food distribution and agricultural systems regarding planting procedures, I think new processes must be presented. I've seen something very interesting in discovery channel, where planting procedures are planned to take place on a vertical ground which is a glass building. They should really take advantage of global warming.
