CLOSING THE FOOD GAP: CONNECTING COMMUNITY AND LOCAL FOOD
Location: Wilson College
Nationally known author Mark Winne, who addresses issues on connecting healthy foods to local communities in his books, “Closing the Food Gap” and “Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart Cookin’ Mamas,” offered remarks on the American food system, and why its current condition is cause for concern. Winne also discussed possible actions to reimagine the food system at a more localized manner. A panel discussion concluded the evening, discussing the food system within south-central Pennsylvania and on-going work to improve this system.
