Edible Education 101: Food Movements with Alice Waters

Wednesday | January 18, 2017 | 6:15 pm — 8:15 pm

Arthur Andersen Auditorium, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business | 2220 Piedmont Ave, Berkeley, CA

This uniquely UC Berkeley course, now in its sixth year, explores the future of food, its diverse systems, and movements. Edible Education 101 is a weekly lecture series that brings renown experts – leading academics and practitioners – to UC Berkeley to share their visions, research, and experiences about food and its critical role in our culture, well-being and survival. Past guest experts have included Mark Bittman, Carlo Petrini, Raj Patel, and Marion Nestle.

The food system is a complex web of interconnected relationships and disciplines. The way food tastes, is produced, distributed and eaten has everything to do with our personal-planetary health and sustainability. Edible Education 101 reveals the links between agroecology, agronomy, anthropology, biology, business, economics, nutrition, philosophy, policy, sociology, technology and the arts. Past lecture topics have included organic agriculture, school lunch reform, food safety, hunger and food security, farm bill reform, farm-to-school efforts, urban agriculture, food sovereignty, and local food economies.
