About this Event

Session 2

Zeide, Anna. 2018. Canned: The Rise and Fall of Consumer Confidence in the American Food Industry.

5:30-7 PM, Reher Center Gallery

Free with suggested donation

Confidence in the American Food Industry. First edition. Oakland, California: University of California Press. Canned food once represented predictable reliability in the American food system, but as the number of contamination and environmental scandals associated with canned goods have grown over the years, they have come to represent increased anxiety about the sources and processing methods of our food, and our distrust in Big Food as a whole. This discussion will ask why the Rehers carried so many canned products and what this might tell us about their customers.

This conversation will be co-facilitated by wine courtesy Kingston Wine Company.
