LOCAL FOOD INITIATIVES: Discussion on New Action in the Local Food Movement

November 13, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

“Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are,” Brillat Savarin

The idea that our food determines our state of mind and health, as expressed by the 19th-century French foodie, Anthime Brillat-Savarin, is as old as it is obvious. Still, in our busy and convenience-seeking lives, most of us living in industrial western countries pay less and less attention to the origin and quality of our meals.

A byproduct of industrialized food production and distribution is the enormous waste (around 35%) of foodstuffs, while more than 15% of US population suffers from food insecurity.

How can we improve access to good and wholesome food, reduce food waste and use organic waste to improve agricultural soils through composting? What do new technologies such as GMO mean for the future of our food production and the environment?
