Choosing and eating food is a significant personal activity that is common to all of us. The various ways that food is produced, distributed, regulated, marketed and consumed have profound cultural, environmental, economic, political, health and social implications. Is it enough to "vote with your fork"? What would a sustainable food system look like? Join us as Mary Embleton, Executive Director of Cascade Harvest Coalition, and Britt Yamamoto, a member of the Core Faculty at the Center for Creative Change at Antioch University, discuss the many dimensions of food and eating. *****
