“If you send it halfway around the world before it is eaten, an organic food still may be ‘good’ for the consumer, but is it ‘good’ for the food system?"— Gary Paul Nabhan
Hungry for Change: Food, Ethics and Sustainability explores the interconnections of our food systems and our relationship to and responsibility in these systems. This course challenges us all to look at our roles as not only as consumers of food, but also as creators — of food, of systems, and of the world we live in. With six sessions designed for weekly discussion, Hungry for Change offers an opportunity to dig deeper into the complex issues surrounding food. Each session includes readings, questions for the group, a “Putting It into Practice” list of suggested actions and “Further Readings and Resources.”
Each week as you meet with your discussion group, we invite you to bring your own experience and critical thinking to the process. The readings are intended to invoke meaningful discussion. Whether you agree or disagree, you will have an opportunity to clarify your views and values
