Part of the Good Lit series underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

New York Times food columnist Mark Bittman leaves no issue unexamined, scrutinizing everything from agricultural practices to government legislation and fad diets while praising the rise of slow-food movements, better school lunch programs, and even the concept of “healthy fast food.” One of the most impassioned and opinionated observers of the food landscape in the United States, Bittman routinely criticizes the staggering shortfalls of the American food system and the forces that regulate it, making us think twice about how the food we eat is produced, distributed and cooked.

Join Bittman for a discussion on the complexities of the American food system, his ideas about how we can improve upon these issues, and the impact that diet can have on our own health and that of the planet.
