SU Hosts 'Food Systems and Sustainability' Series January 30-May 15

Food Systems and SustainabilitySALISBURY, MD---Everybody eats, but how many people know exactly where their food comes from?

Salisbury University explores the complex and sometimes volatile topics of nutrition and the environment during the lecture series “Food Systems and Sustainability” select Mondays from January 30-May 15. Presentations are 7-8:30 p.m. in Conway Hall Room 153.

Areas of focus include food waste; food and culture; inequalities in the production, distribution and consumption of food; and the impact of local food systems on social and environmental sustainability. Presenters include SU faculty members from a variety of disciplines, along with guest speakers. Those attending will hear about opportunities in the community to put what they learn into action.

Each lecture will stand on its own; however, the series is available as a one-credit pass/fail course for students and community members who plan to attend each presentation and participate in written assignments. Those wishing to enroll in the course should sign up for IDIS 280.

Admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6430 or visit the SU website at
