This event will begin with a keynote address from Dr. Joshua Sbicca. Joshua Sbicca is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Colorado State University whose research focuses on the sociological drivers and outcomes of contentious food politics. He studies the tensions and opportunities inherent in food system change efforts amid the pressures of racial, class, and environmental inequalities. Underlying these interests is an ongoing engagement with the practice of food justice and what this means for building broad based social movements.
This keynote will be followed by a panel discussion focused on policy solutions and behavior change promoting food justice within Fort Collins. The panel will feature Dana Gruber, the Executive Director of the Growing Project; Josh Greene, head of Food Sourcing and Operations for the Food Bank of Larimer County; Jennifer Bousselot, Assistant Professor at Colorado State University in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture; Mallory Garneau, Executive Director of the FoCo Cafe; and Siwook Hwang, Leadership Member of Fort Collins Food Not Bombs.
