What’s Eating America – Events

September 25, 2009 at 5:18 pm

In an interesting series of eat local events forthcoming in Oak Park:

What’s Eating America? Food is a central part of our social, cultural and even spiritual lives! It’s the “elephant in the room” in our health care debate, it’s integral to many of our ecological concerns, and it’s the most basic sign of inequality among the various peoples of the world.

Join us this fall for one or all of a series of conversations focused on FOOD and the challenge of creating a joyful, sustainable food system.
