Talk: "Food Fight ~ Get informed about the Farm Bill" — Join the Center for Urban
Education and Sustainable Agriculture for a talk about the Farm Bill by Daniel Imhoff,
author of the soon-to-be-released book Food Fight: The Citizen's Guide to a Food and Farm
Bill. Imhoff will explore the history of the bill, outline key issues from conservation
to nutrition to energy policy, and describe how we can turn the tables. The Farm Bill
"literally shapes our food system, our bodies, and our future ... and most experts assert
that we need nothing less than a revolutionary overhaul of our farm policy to set the
country on a more sustainable trajectory," says Imhoff. The lecture is cosponsored by the
Ecology Center and the Marin Farmers' Market. It will be followed by a reception with
light refreshments and an opportunity to talk with nonprofit organizations supporting
Farm Bill policies that promote a sustainable food system. Daniel Imhoff will be
available to sign copies of Food Fight and his other titles. The event may fill up, so
please reserve your spot by email or phone. Port Commission Hearing Room, 2nd Floor.
Location: Ferry Building, Embarcadero & Market, SF. Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm. Cost: Free.
