Is local food really better? Does eating local really create jobs?
In this talk, Pierre Desrochers will discuss the history, science and economics of the food supply to reveal that local food and local food policies may not be as good as they are claimed to be.
Desrochers is an economic geographer in the Department of Geography at University of Toronto Mississauga and is the co-author of ‘The Locavore’s Dilemma: In Praise of the 10,000-mile Diet’.
We will have a Q&A session at the end of the lecture.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
This is a public event and entry is free. Feel free to bring friends who feel strongly about this issue one way or the other.
