In partnership with Water Street Bookstore, the Food and Health Forum is excited to invite you to a farm-to-table dinner seminar on Monday, June 24th at 6:30 pm to hear nationally renowned speaker David Gumpert, author of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights at the Blue Moon Evolution.
David E. Gumpert is a nationally recognized writer and authority on the intersection of food, health, and business and will talk about how and why more people are stepping outside of the supermarket and going directly to local farmers for things like raw milk, pastured eggs and animals and what this means to our food system.
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights: The Escalating Battle Over Who Decides What We Eat, takes readers on a cross-country journey from Maine to California through a netherworld of Amish farmers paying big fees to questionable advisers to avoid the quagmire of America’s legal system, secret food police lurking in vans at farmers markets, cultish activists preaching the benefits of pathogens, U.S. Justice Department lawyers clashing with local sheriffs, small Maine towns passing ordinances to ban regulation, and suburban moms worried enough about the dangers of supermarket food that they’ll risk fines and jail to feed their children unprocessed, and unregulated, foods of their choosing.
David is also the author of The Raw Milk Revolution: Behind America’s Emerging Battle Over Food Rights, and author of his provocative and popular blog, The Complete Patient. He is also a former reporter with The Wall Street Journal, editor at Inc. and Harvard Business Review, and has authored or coauthored of seven books about small business and entrepreneurship) He has also written many articles on Grist.org and The Huffington Post about food rights.
Registration fee: $60, includes three-course family-style dinner and a glass of wine.
