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