Beyond the Table: Food Justice, Science and Policy will take place Monday, April 17, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., at UW Union South’s Varsity Hall.
Food is a word that elicits different responses for people, from consideration of culinary tastes to lack of availability and is ultra important because it is a basic need for human health and livelihood. We in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) explore food as a lifestyle, a business and a source of oppression, and research shows what an impact it can have on people’s daily lives. This workshop will feature experts who will lead the discussion on a number of relevant topics (i.e. Food Justice, Food as Freedom, Urban Farming, etc.). Our targeted audience is BIPOC students, faculty and staff, but would be open to anyone.
