Our relationship to food here at MSU is changing. Look around and you will see long lines for “grab and go” or Combo-X-Change meals while the dining halls have far fewer patrons. The plastic waste generated by this trend is staggering. Meanwhile, whole, freshly harvested, organic food from the MSU Student Organic Farm is more and more seen as less desirable because it takes longer to prepare. We invite you to join the conversation about this national trend on college campuses to unpack the consequences of our food, and to look at alternatives to re-envision the role of student farms.
This program is presented as part of the MSU Science Festival.
