Food for Thought

"Can we have a discussion about how we choose what we eat?" This question will be analyzed at an upcoming continuing education conference presented by a consortium of Indiana University and Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis alumni associations. Inspired by IUPUI's inaugural "Common Theme book", Deep Economy by Bill McKibben, and the 2010 Spirit & Place theme, a panel of faculty and local experts will explore how and why we consume food: its sources, quality, culture, and markets and the consequences of our consumption on our local and worldwide community.

Featured speaker is David Shalleck, author of Mediterranean Summer, winner of the 2008 Cordon d'Or Culinary Academy Award.

The conference is 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. 6 March in the University Place Conference Center and Hotel, 850 West Michigan Street, Indianapolis. Complete information is online, including how to register (fee for non-alumni is $45).
