The world population is estimated to surpass 8 billion people in the next 20 years—how can we ensure that our food system will sustain us? Join us for an exciting round-table discussion exploring long-term global food security. Panelists include Raj Patel (Food First Policy Fellow, researcher, activist, and best-selling author of Stuffed and Starved, Food Rebellions, and The Value of Nothing), Molly Jahn (professor in the Laboratory of Genetics and Department of Agronomy at the University of Madison-Wisconsin; former Deputy Under Secretary for Research, Education, and Economics at the USDA), and Marcus Samuelsson (award-winning chef and author, UNICEF Ambassador, and owner of Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem,).
This program is presented in conjunction with Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture, the latest exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History.
Exclusive corporate sponsor for Our Global Kitchen is J. P. Morgan.
The Kitchen Experience is presented by Whole Foods.
Additional support for the Our Global Kitchen exhibition, as well as the Educator’s Guide and exhibition website, was provided by The GRACE Communications Foundation, in furtherance of its mission to promote public awareness of the problems associated with our food systems and provide information, resources, and tools for consumers to make change.
