What is our modern food system and how did we get here?

Touching on attitudes, access to basic nutrition and food sovereignty, Fergal Anderson will be joined by guests to address some of the issues of feeding ourselves in the modern world. But this is not a talk shop, there are tangible solutions to problems out there that can very easily be implemented once you know and want them.

This talk will focus on the people who are producing our food – from large scale corporations to small farmers and community supported agriculture.

Food is political.

Get involved.
