Marion Nestle, food policy expert, will be speaking at a forum called “Let’s Talk about the Farm Bill” at Boston’s Museum of Science in a couple weeks. This is part of the MOS “Let’s Talk About Food” lecture series.
What’s the big deal about the farm bill? An interactive “teach-in” explores the ways that subsidies and regulations impact the quality and cost of the foods we consume here in New England. Learn about the process and meet some of the stakeholders, share your perspectives, and find out how the public can have a voice in reshaping the face of agriculture.
Speakers include: Marion Nestle, PhD, professor of nutrition and public health at New York University, author of Food Politics and What to Eat; Representative Chellie Pingree (Maine), member of the House Committee on Agriculture; and Tim Griffin, PhD, Director, Agriculture, Food and Environment Program, Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy, Tufts University.
When: Sunday, January 29th, 2012 at 3pm
Where: Cahners Theater, Museum of Science
