Introduction to Food Policy & Practice Lecture Series

Event Navigation

From our organizers:

This introductory food policy & practice lecture series will examine how the myriad of actors, including government agencies, industry, and consumers, shape food priorities and policies in the US. The lecture series is designed so that students will have a clear understanding of the history of agriculture and food policies that led to our current conditions and develop a sense of what is required to build a sustainable food system moving forward. Participants will learn through a variety of experiential and hands-on methods and approaches including guest lectures, films, field trips and readings.
