Land of Plenty
September 14, 2011
Students gathered together in the Hutton Honors College Great room to have a round table discussion with sustainable food expert Mark Winne. Mr. Winne "is a co-founder of a number of food and agriculture policy groups including . . . End Hunger Connecticut!, and the national Community Food Security Coalition. . . . [He] was a member of the United States delegation to the 2000 World Conference on Food Security in Rome and is a 2001 recipient of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary's Plow Honor Award. From 2002 until 2004, Mark was a Food and Society Policy Fellow, a position supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. . . . . [Mr. Winne] currently writes, speaks, and consults extensively on community food system topics including hunger and food insecurity, local and regional agriculture, community food assessment, and food policy." Students enjoyed asking Mr. Winne questions and learning more about our food industry.
