As the world’s population grows and its resources are tapped, the ability to feed everyone is intensifying as a topic of study and conversation. In this week’s Science magazine, an article addresses the nuances of prices and food security. The article states that neither high prices nor low prices is a panacea and suggests that we consider this issue more deeply. A great way to get some context for discussing food security is by checking out the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture’s upcoming exhibit, “Hungry Planet: What the World Eats”. The exhibit is opening this Saturday, January 28. And to fully inform your conversations about food attend the talk next week by University of Minnesota’s Jon Foley, entitled “Feeding the World, While Sustaining the Planet: Addressing the Challenges to Global Food Security and Environmental Sustainability in the 21st Century”. A Walker-Ames endowed lecture, the College of the Environment, along with the Graduate School and the Alumni, is excited to bring Jon to campus to talk about food!
