"Biting the Hands that Feed Us" Webinar Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016 at 11:15 a.m.

The Environmental Education Center will host a webinar from 11:15 to 12:45 a.m. Tuesday Sept. 27th titled "Biting the Hands that Feed Us". Food waste, hunger, inhumane livestock conditions, disappearing fish stocks—these are exactly the kind of issues we expect food regulations to combat. Yet, today in the United States, laws exist at all levels of government that actually make these problems worse.

The speaker is Baylen Linnekin, author of Biting the Hands that Feed Us. This webinar will introduce us to the perverse consequences of many food rules. Some of these rules constrain the sale of “ugly” fruits and vegetables, relegating bushels of tasty but misshapen carrots and strawberries to food waste.
