Throughout the industrialised world, we're facing increasingly toxic mainstream food production and distribution systems. From government corruption to corporate control of markets and regulation - transforming food systems can seem extremely difficult. Join us for a fascinating evening of talks that shed light on how 'mainstream' food systems are being (mis)managed and what ordinary people can do to challenge these toxic systems.

5pm - Bar open. Drinks available for purchase.

6pm - A hearty soup and crusty bread will be served by Food Connect

6pm - Jonathan Latham PhD, Co-founder and Executive Director of the Bioscience Resource Project, New York, will provide a fascinating talk about the global environmental and social problems caused by the industrial food system, with a particular focus on the control that corporations and governments have on the US food system, and what's being done to challenge it.
