With Chris Taylor, Director, Food Fight; David Waters, CEO, Community Servings; in a discussion moderated by Louisa Kasdon, Founder and CEO, Let’s Talk About Food, LLC, and Food Editor, Stuff Magazine.
facing the food problems of undersupply and malnourishment in the 1920s
and 1930s, American agricultural policy has grown to promote a system
that boasts big farms and even bigger food processing conglomerates that
favor cheap commodities and long shelf life over fresh, healthy,
flavorful food. Food Fight offers a fascinating look at how this food
culture developed, and how the California food movement in the 1960s
created a counterrevolution with values centered on local, tasty
ingredients and healthy meals. From the Farm Bill to our daily food
choices, we have the power to share in this revolution. Join us for
this film screening and discussion to learn how.
Advance registration begins at 9:00 a.m., Monday, October 10 (Friday, October 7 for Museum members).
