MARCH 8-12th, 2009 - Botterell Hall, Queen's University
Presented by Queen's Medicine Global Health Initiative & CAPE (Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment)
Have you ever wondered how your 59 cents/pound bananas got to Food Basics? Panama is a long ways away. Or how about the environmental impact of all this food traveling around the globe? What's the deal with local and organic food anyway? Is it better for me, if not, who is it better for? Should I bother to pay the extra money and take on the extra hassle?
To encourage students to collaborate and think
about where our food comes from and how it affects our health
beyond the nutritional content of the food.
