Our first food discussion group is from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on Sunday October 12th. At this first get together we will watch and discuss two documentaries (Food Myths and National Geographic's "How to Feed Our Growing Planet") that consider the question of how we will feed the growing world population. Do we need more technology or different eating habits or more sustainable farming practices or some combination? A reading list is below. Join us and, if you'd like, bring some food to share that you can talk about.
