OLLI @Berkeley presents "Riding the Next Wave," a series of conversations with Sylvia Paull in which Sylvia and her guests will forecast the year's advances in the arts, culture, and technology
This conversation will take a look at the deeply flawed National School Lunch Program--a central source of nutrition for more than 30 million US children--and exploration of healthy, sane, sustainable alternatives.

She is a co-founder of the food politics blog civileats.com and the nonprofit journalism startup the Food and Environment Reporting Network (thefern.org). She has been an editor and writer at The New York Times Magazine, a senior editor at Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, editor-in-chief of Wired magazine, and editor-at-large for Dwell and Newsweek/The Daily Beast.
