There is definitely a food revolution in the works. If you live in West Michigan, you should spend some time at Hope College’s annual Critical Issues Symposium, which focuses on food this year. It’s called “Good Food for the Common Good” and it’s going on October 5 and 6. Plus, it’s free.
First held in March of 1980, the symposium was designed to stimulate serious thinking about current issues, and to provide a forum in which the Holland community, students, and faculty may all engage in discussion with experts.
This year, there are some great speakers on deck, including Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms, who is featured in the movie “Food, Inc.” and Bryant Terry, eco-chef and food justice activist. Here’s the complete line-up and schedule.
If you have time to go and live in the area, check it out and let me know what you think of the sessions!
