Food Day Lecture


Food Day Lecture by Wenonah Hauter

Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food and Water Watch and author of Foodopoly: The Battle over the Future of Food and Farming in America, spoke on the ISU campus at the 3rd annual celebration of Food Day on October 22. She recounts the historical evolution of farm policy, which once allowed farmers to make a decent living, into the corporate-controlled entity it is today. Hauter argues that the local foods movement is good, but not sufficient, and makes the provocative pitch for academic freedom on college campuses, especially ones like ISU where corporations fund research.
