Event Details

Frederick Kaufman, Contributing Editor, Harper's; Professor, Graduate School of Journalism, City University of New York

In conversation with Anna Lappe, Author and Educator; Founding Principal, Small Planet Institute 

Kaufman has investigated the hidden connection between global food and global finance by asking the question: Why can’t delicious, inexpensive and healthy food be available to everyone on Earth? Kaufman travelled from the corporate headquarters of Domino’s Pizza and Tyson Foods to Walmart’s sustainability research center, to mega-farms and organic farms and genetic modification laboratories. He went to Rome to attend the meeting of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, and ended up on Wall Street and the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, where he found his answer. Come discover what he learned.
