SONS OF NORWAY TROLL LOUNGE
A public conversation about what we eat and the people, places and practices we rely on to grow our food with Jamie Holding Eagle, Master of Public Health candidate, NDSU, who has researched the nutritional benefits of traditional food crops and organized with the Growing Together Community Gardens and Red River Seed Library, and Dr. William Nganje, chair, Agribusiness and Applied Economics, NDSU, who has researched the economics of obesity, food safety and food terrorism and consumer choice theory. Moderated by Megan Myrdal, MS, RDN, Cass Clay Food Systems Initiative, Farmer's Daughter Consulting, LLC, and Ugly Food of the North.
How do our appetites connect us to commodities and communities across the globe? When did your family last grow, hunt or gather a significant percentage of the food they ate? Would it be possible today to survive only on food sourced locally? Who benefits through globalized agricultural production and trade? How do agricultural subsidies influence our decisions about what we eat? Who can afford health-promoting food? What’s the cost of not eating well?
