New York City: Feeding Gotham
I’m on a panel on the history and future of food policy in New York City at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 5th Avenue at 34th Street, Elebash Recital Hall, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
The panel: Gergley Baics (Barnard) will speak about his new book, Feeding Gotham, exploring the deregulation of the city’s public food markets in the early 1800s. I will talk about the late Joy Santlofer’s recent release Food City: Four Centuries of Food-Making in New York (for which I wrote the Foreword), and Nick Freudenberg (CUNY Public Health) will discuss food policy issues facing the city. Mark Bittman is moderator. Co-sponsored by Wellness in the Schools and Green Bronx Machine.
