Join CSSC staff, visiting chefs, foodies and local food producers for a monthly book club and practicum all about food entitled “Food Glorious Food”. We will explore the serious side of food,
how it is produced, the economics and politics behind it and the responsibility we have as consumers. This reading and discussion program will also entail some hands-on opportunities.

Registration is FREE but will be limited. The group will meet the last Thursday of the month at 11:00 a.m. in the community room at King Thiel Senior Community, 17 Elks Lane in Latham. We ask that participants plan on attending all scheduled sessions.

March 30, April 27, May 25, and June 29.

Books chosen for this program are as follows:

• Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of Us by Matt Fitzgerald

• In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto by Michael Pollan

• Diet for a Small Planet by Frances Moore Lappe

• How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health by Marion Nestle

Copies of the books to be discussed will be loaned to participants. This program is made possible with funding from Humanities New York.
