Food: Eating Your Environment

From the field to the kitchen, Seattle to the African plains, follow food production from the dawn of the human species through today. Food: Eating Your Environment is the UW’s premier lecture series of the year and brings public practitioners and intellectuals to campus to discuss new, interesting and occasionally controversial topics as we explore the most personal of public resources: food.

Join us for nine thought-provoking lectures that touch on global food security, politics, science and society. Among others, hear from Marion Nestle, managing editor of the 1988 Surgeon General’s Report on Nutrition and Health; Cary Fowler, executive director of the Global Crop Diversity Trust; and Gebisa Ejeta, a native of Ethiopia and winner of the 2009 World Food Prize.

Lectures will be held Tuesdays from Oct. 5 to Dec. 7 at Kane Hall on the UW campus. To learn more information, visit
