This course examines sustainable urban food systems, from farm to fork. Students explore the concept of community food security, disparities in access to food, and the social, political, economic, and environmental dimensions of food production, distribution, and marketing. Through field trips to urban farms, farmers markets, and food production facilities, together with guest lectures, students meet food producers, processors and distributors, as well as policy makers, and activists.
Open to Undergraduate students.
