Food justice activist and author Mark Winne is returning to Wesleyan this Thursday to give a talk entitled “The Myth of Food Democracy: Ethics, Choice and the Tyranny of the Marketplace.”

The event will take place in the Woodhead Lounge (Exley) on Thursday October 11th from 4:15-5:30 PM with a reception to follow featuring Udupi’s Indian food.

In light of the upcoming general election, Mark Winne will address the links between food justice and the national election, as well as the market barriers that impede genuine democracy.
