March 17, 2015. CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, New York, N.Y., 10016
On March 17th, in honor of the 40th Anniversary of Food First / Institute for Food and Development Policy in Oakland, California, Food Policy for Breakfast will present Eric Holt-Giménez , who will speak on “Putting the Public Back in Food.” He will describe the vanishing public sphere and what local food activists can do to resist the increasing privatization of the food system. As Eric states, Today’s food system has been shaped by the privatization of public goods and the deregulation of corporate capital, leading to the highest levels of global inequality in economic history…. In many ways the community food movement, with its projects for a fair, sustainable, healthy food system is rebuilding our public sphere from the ground up.”
Moderated by Nevin Cohen, Associate Professor of Health/Urban Food Policy at the CUNY School of Public Health and Faculty Associate, NYC Food Policy Center at Hunter College.
