Urban Farm and Food Systems Bus Tour
Saturday, October 15th 8 am – 3 pm
Westin Waterfront Hotel

Join the Hunger and Environmental DPG for our annual Urban Farm and Food Systems Bus Tour. On our way to our first stop we will hear from an Organic Valley farmer on their cooperative model and why organic practices are healthy for the environment, animals, and people. Our first stop will be Brigham and Women's Hospital to tour facilities and hear about their progress in sustainability practices throughout their foodservice operations. The tour then stops at Community Servings where each week 9,600 meals are prepared and delivered to individuals and families homebound and living with critical and chronic illnesses – all while training those who face barriers to employment and increasing community access to local food. At Haley House we will enjoy lunch, time to connect, and hear about the social enterprises they run, employment programs, urban agriculture, nutrition education, and food and meal programs they offer. Our final stop is Groundwork Somerville’s South Street Urban Farm – the first in this community where we will hear about Groundwork Somerville’s work at the intersection of food access and environmental justice. CPEU’s Requested.

The Hunger and Environmental Nutrition (HEN) DPG’s Annual Film Feastival celebrates its 10th anniversary with hearty appetizers, libations, awards ceremony, networking, and the screening of "Merchants of  Doubt." Based on the book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway. Merchants of Doubt describes how “scientific authorities” obscured the truth about tobacco smoke, toxic chemicals and global warming. A panel following the film will address the methods (spin) used by corporations to protect their profits, while harming our environment and public health.

A panel-audience discussion takes place directly following the screening. 

Panelists include: Josh Golin, Executive Director of the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood, Boston; Sheldon Krimsky, Ph.D.,  Tufts University professor of  urban and environmental policy and planning at Tufts University and co-editor of “The GMO Deception: What You Need to Know about the Food, Corporations, and Government Agencies Putting Our Families and Our Environment at Risk;” and Jonathan Latham, Ph.D., Co-founder and Executive Director of the Bioscience Resource Project and Editor of Independent Science News, based in Ithaca, NY.
