Carolina Fojo, a Fellow for the Bon Appétit Management Company Foundation, will host a presentation and discussion on Thursday, October 6th on sustainable food issues.
Her job takes her to different colleges along the East Coast that Bon Appétit serves, where she hosts events to raise awareness about the most pressing food issues affecting both Bon Appétit as a food service company and us as consumers. During these events, the discussion is focused around a few of these issues, ranging from farmworker rights and climate change, to humane treatment of animals, local food, and sustainable fishing practices. In particular, she thought you’d be interested in farmworker rights, as 10% of all slavery in the US takes place in the agricultural industry, and over 90% of agricultural workers are Latino.
Free sustainable hors d’oeuvres will be served!
Hope you can join us…. on Facebook and in person!
Date: Oct. 6
Time: 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Place: Usdan 110
