Video recordings from Winter 2017 guest speakers are available! Food Literacy for all is a community-academic partnership course exploring sustainable food system from distinguished leaders. Join us in watching and continuing the #FoodLiteracyForAll conversation.
Food Literacy for All (NRE.639.038 and ENVIRON305.003) is a community-academic partnership course started in Winter 2017. Structured as an evening lecture series, Food Literacy for All features 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. By bringing national and global leaders, we aim to ignite new conversations and deepen existing commitments to building more equitable, health-promoting, and ecologically sustainable food systems.
The course was co-led by Jennifer Blesh, agroecologist and Assistant Professor in the School of Natural Resources and Environment, Malik Yakini, Executive Director and a co-founder of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network, and Lilly Fink Shapiro, Program Manager for the Sustainable Food Systems Initiative.
