In this course, the concept of sustainable urban food systems is explored from farm to fork. Topics discussed include community food security; disparities in access to food; and the social, political, economic, and environmental dimensions of food production, distribution, and marketing for contemporary city dwellers. Through guest lectures and field trips to urban farms, farmer’s markets, and food production facilities, students meet food producers, processors, and distributors as well as policymakers and activists.
Open to Undergraduate students.
