While they were approaching the issue with different solutions, they both spoke about the importance of student involvement and consumer awareness. They identified the importance of eating local and the problems of mass production. Students interested in campus food issues can contact me, Prof. Scott Carlin, or Sarah Pomerenke at LIU Post. We also encourage you to attend the Sustainable Post meetings. And don’t forget about the Sociology of Food course this Spring 2016!
