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).
The link between obesity and food systems: World Bank
I’m late in seeing this but the World Bank published this report linking food systems to obesity last year.
It’s got lots of charts and tables and ends with actions that can be taken in food production systems to improve food quality. It’s wonky, but useful.
