"Food For Good"

We all share the act of eating. However, the topic of food is increasingly complex – especially as we become more distant from the sources of food. Food cultures have deep roots, rich heritage, and increasing diversity, but also inherent controversies associated with eating in a changing world. Gathering around the topic of food brings community as well as opportunities to engage diverse perspectives. Join us at the table to explore "Food for Good," the 2020 topic of the Faith, Reason and World Affairs symposium.
