The Pleasure and Politics of Food: A live viewing party of Mark Bittman’s sold out Toronto talk, featuring a live chat; Community Food Centres Canada

November 8, 2017

12:00-1:00 p.m. Eastern

Mark Bittman is one of the sharpest and most knowledgeable food writers working today. On October 11, Mark joined Ann Hui, National Food Reporter at The Globe and Mail, on stage at the Great Hall in Toronto for a wide-ranging conversation about the pleasure and politics of food.

Food plays a huge and fundamental role in our lives. It’s what connects us to each other, and it’s at the centre of many of society’s most pressing issues, from income and health to climate change and land rights. Few know more about the politics and pleasure of food than journalist and advocate Mark Bittman. The bestselling author of more than 20 food and cooking books is one of North America’s most well-respected voices on the many facets of the food file, from how to bake a perfect loaf of bread to how our food policies impact our health and the health of our planet.

If you love food and care about how our food choices shape our health, our culture, and our planet, you don't want to miss this viewing and live chat. We'll be joined by practitioners in the food movement to add fodder to the group discussion.
