Nine billion humans on the planet by 2050; fifty million food insecure Americans today; climate change altering our capacity to produce food. These realities must be addressed if we're going to ensure an affordable and health food supply for all throughout the 21st century. Mark Winne, long-time food system activist and author, will consider the approaches of both the dominant industrial food system and smaller, more community-based food systems, and what they mean for health and democracy.

This lecture is sponsored by the Anthropology Department, the Department of Urban and Public Affairs, the KY Institute for the Environment and Sustainable Development, and the University Sustainability Council.
