Panel on the Present and Future of Sustainable Foods
This panel will discuss the challenges and successes associated with small-scale local food systems and independent food stores versus large-scale industrial organics and corporations such as Whole Foods. We will also discuss the difficulties of incorporating sustainably grown food into university food services. Panelists will include local food activists like Doug Peterson, a former owner of a health food coop and current produce buyer for the Whole Foods in Milford, CT, and farmers from our area. The panel will be moderated by Courtney Fullilove, Assistant Professor of History.
