Food connects us all. It sustains the body, the community. The daily quest for food drives much of human activity. We are in a time of great examination of how we raise our food, over simple sufficiency, over excessive calories consumed and excessive calories wasted. We have angst about whether our food is safe to eat. Whether GMO’s are part of the problem, or part of the solution? Is fresh always better than frozen? Do we all need to become urban farmers or vegans? What are the best strategies to feed a healthy, hungry world? Join Wellesley College political science professor Robert Paarlberg and food writer Louisa Kasdon ‘72 for a conversation that will address these questions.
