The American Food System with Helene York

The American Food System: Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and Where Are We Going

Come join us in the Daniel Family Commons tomorrow (Tues.) night at 7 p.m. to listen to Helene York discuss the current dilemmas of the food system and offer a glimpse into the future of food management. Helene York is the Director of Bon Appétit Management Company Foundation, a foundation that serves to educate chefs and consumers alike about how their food choices affect the global environment and to effect supply chain improvements. This event is an incredible opportunity to hear an amazing woman lecture about something that is near and dear to all of our hearts: the intersection of foodsustainability, and America.

This presentation adds to York’s already impressive resume after giving presentations at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum of the United States and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. York also developed Bon Appetite’s Low Carbon Diet Program and maintains a position as a regular contributor to the Atlantic Monthly’s online Food Channel.

In short, she’s kind of a big deal. Did I mention that she holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvard and a Master’s in Public and Private Management from our neighbor down the road (read: Yale)?

Best of all, the event is free!
