About the evening: 

In the information age, we have developed a very complex relationship with our food. Join the Drink Salon on Tech and Ethics for a focused discussion on Boston's local food system. The evening will begin with opening comments and a macro-level look at Boston's food system and its resilience with one of the lead authors of the recent food resilience studies conducted for Boston, Resilient Food Systems, Resilient Cities: Recommendation for the City of Boston. The event will kick-off with this month's Drink Salon Community Curator, Kathryn Wright.

The night will then continue with local food innovators Grove Labs, a technology start-up focused on bringing food production into people's homes, and Fresh Food Generation, a food truck which focuses on bringing the farm-to-table concept to low-income neighborhoods in Boston. There will of course be snacks!

Community Curator: Kathryn Wright
