I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).
Want to get active on farm policy? Here’s a start.
The website, says IATP:
makes it simple for health professionals—nurses, dieticians, physicians, public health workers, social workers and others—to engage in major public policy debates that affect our food system. It provides both vital information and easy-to-use tools to contact legislators, government officials and companies.
“Will make it simple” seems more like it. At the moment, the site seems to be devoted exclusively to the issue of arsenic in poultry feed. Eventually, it promises to take on other issues such as antibiotics in food animals and the Farm Bill.
Ah yes, the Farm Bill. It’s none to early to get started on the next one. Sites like this could help once they get into full swing.
The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy works locally and globally at the intersection of policy and practice to ensure fair and sustainable food, farm and trade systems.
