What Does Food Have To Do With Stewardship? Panel Will Discuss

From: Public Affairs

Providing public transportation and recycling opportunities are not the only ways that the JMU and Harrisonburg communities have encouraged good environmental stewardship practices.

Sustainable food and farming practices also play a part and will be the topic of "Food Matters," the second "Think Green, It's Friday" roundtable from 11 a.m. to noon, Friday, Feb. 17. The event will be held in ISAT/CS 259 Ntelos Room.

Speakers will be Stephanie Hoshower, director of dining services; Francie Lee Kennedy, project coordinator of Shenandoah Valley Farm to Table; Suzi Carter, outreach and owner service team leader at Friendly City Food Co-Op; and Eric Bendfeldt, extension specialist and community viability for Virginia Cooperative Extension.

The TGIF Series is sponsored by the Institute for Stewardship of the Natural World and will feature a different topic one Friday of each month during the school year. Other events in the series are scheduled for March 16 and April 27. Themes, locations and times will be announced.
