Food Symposium--"Food and Farming for the Future: Eat Healthy/Grow Responsibly"

Hearkening the College’s heritage in agriculture and the current Grow Food, Grow Hope initiative, WC is sponsoring a food symposium April 22 titled “Food and Farming for the Future: Eat Healthy/Grow Responsibly.”

While program details are evolving, the daylong event — purposely scheduled to coincide with Earth Day — will feature several presenters on such topics as Earth-friendly methods of food production, fresh and green food alternatives, and feeding the world’s growing population.

Also, a Harcum Art Gallery exhibit on “What the World Eats” has been scheduled.

The Grow Food, Grow Hope initiative is a WC-sponsored project that seeks to raise awareness of the benefits of local and sustainable food production, and in turn combat the effects of poverty.

The symposium is being held in conjunction with local Earth Day events, including WC’s annual Quake Day for Community Service.
