The Rise of the Food Movement

Mar 7, 2017

Tuesday, we’re talking about the rise of the Good Food Movement. It’s an ad hoc cultural crusade that has cropped up across America in the past decade, advocating for good food produced in ways that benefit both the land and the people who grow it. And it’s been successful: local, organic, and natural food is now all the rage. The journalist Naomi Starkman has documented the growth of the Good Food Movement. She’s in Salt Lake this week, and she joins us to discuss how food nourishes the body and soul.

On Tuesday, March 7, Naomi Starkman is giving a lecture on the rise of the Good Food Movement at 7 p.m. at the Natural History Museum of Utah. The event is free and open to the public. For more information and to reserve seats, visit the NHMU web site.

Naomi Starkman is a founder and the editor-in-chief of the daily news publication Civil Eats, which was awarded the 2014 James Beard Award for publication of the year.
