Hidden Kitchens: Telling Stories about Building Community through Food
Wednesday | March 22, 2017 | 6:15 pm
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.
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.
Edible Education 101 aims to inspire you to become more aware, informed and intentional about your role and participation in the food system. Learners also have an opportunity to experience the diverse disciplines and myriad career paths available to those desiring to impact the future of food in a meaningful way.Visit Event Website >>
