"Food Justice for a Small Planet"
Thursday, May 1, 2014
1941 Room, College Center at Crozier Williams
Diet for a Small Planet author Frances Moore Lappe (shown at left) will be sharing her extensive current research examining the policies and politics that have kept hungry people from feeding themselves around the world as well as the misconceptions that have obscured our own national, social and humanitarian interests.
In the forty years that she has been part of the food movement, the context of food justice has come to include pressing issues like GMOs, climate change and free trade, which she will explore with the Connecticut College community on May 1, 2014.
