Food & the Wisconsin Idea
Food & the Wisconsin Idea began in 2016 to bring together UW-Madison faculty, staff and graduate students who were working on food system issues in relative isolation. We were surprised and pleased when local community members began attending the monthly gatherings.
The phrase “Wisconsin Idea” means a lot to us here. For over 100 years it has signified a commitment to extend the knowledge gained from UW research to the borders of the state, and then beyond. It also requires that we listen to and respect the knowledge of all state residents.
Beginning in January 2018 we will take the conversation in Madison to the borders of the state and beyond using newly acquired video conferencing technology.
