Hey SOPE!

Sorry for the minute delay! Here's what we talked about last Wednesday

:)

ANNOUNCEMENTS

1) TONIGHT in the Goodhue Superlounge is an Olympics Opening Ceremony party, sponsored by MPIRG and Green Wars! Head over around 7:30 p.m. for some winter fun, tasty snacks and awesome people!

2) Organics and Hunger talk on Monday at 4 p.m. in the Athenaeum

What:


The growing organic foods movement has led to a substantial increase in the quality of foods for many.  At the same time, there are individuals who cannot afford the additional cost of organic foods.  The danger then becomes a wider gap in food quality between low-income families and those who can afford organics.  Our panel hopes to educate about ways that the organic food movement can create quality food for everyone without increasing income-based disparities in food quality.

Panelists:
Ted Evans, Emergency Food Shelf Network, Twin Cities
Sharon Erickson Ropes, Minnesota Senator and sponsor of Minnesota law requiring organic foods for welfare recipients
Laurie and David Hougen-Eitzman, Owners, Big Woods Organic Farm in Nerstrand, MN

3) My Food Story Panel on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the Athenaeum. Sponsored by Food Truth and Green Wars.

have a lovely weekend!

see you

next Wednesday at 9 p.m. in Sayles 251!
