Panel Discussion: Lecture Series: Highlight | March 19 | 5-7 p.m. | International House, Chevron Auditorium
Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, Emerita, New York University; Alice Waters, Owner, Chez Panisse
The U.S food system is byzantine and failing many of our most vulnerable communities, including our children. The complex problems that stem from our production and consumption of food include a range of health consequences, but also poor water quality, food waste, safety issues, labeling confusion, food insecurity, and issues affecting farm and restaurant workers.
Join us for a wide-ranging conversation with renowned local restaurateur and activist Alice Waters and influential alumna and author Marion Nestle, who will talk about the current state of our food system and why they think the food movement is a beacon of light at the intersection of agriculture, food, nutrition, and public health.
This talk is part of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health's 75th Anniversary Speaker Series. It is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Food Institute.
