BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College will host a Dialogue on Food with a series of presentations and events Sept. 22-24 on its campus. The Kitchen Sisters, producers of “Hidden Kitchens,” the DuPont Award-winning radio series on NPR's “Morning Edition;” Frances Moore Lappe, a democracy advocate, world food and hunger expert, and author of a number of books including “Diet for a Small Planet;” Ana Sofia Joanes, director of the film “Fresh,” which celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system; and David Beckmann, executive director of Bread for the World, a collective Christian voice urging U.S. decision makers to end hunger in America and abroad, will be the featured speakers.
BSC is launching its inaugural Dialogue Series this fall, a yearlong, cross-disciplinary discussion on a single topic. For this 2009-10 academic year, the BSC community will engage in a Dialogue on Food using “Menu for the Future,” a discussion guide published by Northwest Earth Institute, as a reference text.
