An Evening With Mark Bittman: The History and Future of FoodWebcasts & Online
Wednesday, May 5, 2021, 5 – 6pm EDT
Award-winning food journalist and former columnist for The New York Times Mark Bittman says, “you can’t have a serious conversation about food without talking about human rights, climate change, and justice.” In his newest book, Animal, Vegetable, Junk: A History of Food, from Sustainable to Suicidal, Bittman tells the story of how food has driven human history, and explores food’s effect on our planet and its impacts on climate change.
In conversation with Kirk Johnson, Sant Director of the National Museum of Natural History, Bittman will discuss how history has been shaped by humanity’s appetite for food, farmland, and the money behind it all—and how a better future is within reach.
