In today’s fast-paced, fast food world, everyone seems to be eating alone, all the time—whether it’s at their desks or in the car. Even those who find time for a family meal are cut off from the people who grew, harvested, distributed, marketed, and sold the foods on their table. Few ever break bread with anyone outside their own socioeconomic group. So why does Michael Carolan say that that no one eats alone?

Join Culinaria Research Centre, New College and the Toronto Food Policy Council as we celebrate World Food Day with a distinguished public lecture by Dr. Michael Carolan. He will be launching his most recent book, No One Eats Alone: Food as a Social Enterprise. The lecture will be followed by an interactive and dynamic Q&A moderated by host of "CBC Radio One Ideas" Paul Kennedy and will be hosted by Master of Ceremonies, Sarah Elton, author of Consumed: Food For a Finite Planet.

Light refreshments will be served. Registeraton is required, and space is limited. Register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/world-food-day-and-public-lecture-by-dr-michael-carolan-tickets-38498653509
