IPE Brown Bag Oct. 28th-“Growing Food, Growing Communities”

Bring your lunch and join IPE summer research grant recipient, Kendle Bjelland, as she presents her summer research on sustainable urban food systems. The talk is located in Wheelock Student Center Room 101 from 12-1pm on Wed. October 28th. All are welcome to attend.

Background: Kendle has previously led research on the interconnectedness of local and international food systems. Below is a description of her past work, including a link to the documentary that Kendle and her colleague, Joseph La Sac, produced:

“In the midst of a global recession and increasing hunger, eating locally and supporting regional food self sufficiency may do more than improve your health. Local filmmakers Kendle Bjelland and Joseph La Sac bring an international perspective to our local food movement, illustrating not only how we can participate in more sustainable consumption, but also why. In this short documentary, national food policy is deconstructed and we are shown how each individual can participate in a healthier lifestyle and the revival of food culture in Pierce County."
