The Impact of Capitalism on Food

July 14, 10:00 am - 11:30 am

This “people’s think tank” will give you a new lens for viewing capitalism, cheap food, hunger, and the position of Slow Food in the change movement. We’ll explore the subjects of A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things (Raj Patel and Jason Moore, 2017). And we’ll provide a forum to exchange ideas on concrete next steps toward fundamental change.

Don’t miss this engaging talk with writer, activist and academic Raj Patel and Gail Myers, co-founder of Farms to Grow, Inc! Moderated by Tom Philpott of Mother Jones.

Waste Not, Want Not

July 15, 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Join Massimo Bottura, Michael Hurwitz, and Mark Freeman in a talk moderated by Tom Philpott of Mother Jones to learn more about the causes and impact of food waste.

And we’ll walk away with tangible actions that we can take to make an impact.
