Ethics of Sustainable Food, Jan. 16

Ethics of Sustainable Food 400Making “ethical” food decisions is a hot topic these days, but sorting out exactly what that means can be difficult. Join Team Kenan to explore some of the perspectives and contradictions in the sustainable food movement. This discussion will center issues of equity, access, and responsibility in food production. We are often told that “sustainable” food is better, but how and for whom is often less clear. How can we understand the true cost of food, for the environment, for workers, and for consumers with limited purchasing power? How can we change the way we grow, process, and eat food to create a healthier society? Equally importantly, what might we lose along the way?

Join Team Kenan for a panel discussion featuring, Charles Thompson, professor of Documentary Studies and American Studies, Norman Wirzba, Professor of Theology and Ecologuy, and Shana Starobin, Kenan Graduate Fellow and PhD Candidate in the Nicholas School on Thursday, January 16th at 7:00 PM in Sanford 05!

Dinner from Nosh will be provided to those who RSVP by January 14th at 5pm.
