This is a public event that can count as a town hall meeting. It will be held in Angell Hall Auditorium B at 6:30pm on Tuesday, February 19th. 

What: "Structured as an evening lecture series, Food Literacy for All features different guest speakers each week to address diverse challenges and opportunities of both domestic and global food systems. The course is designed to prioritize engaged scholarship that connects theory and practice.
