One of the nation’s experts on food deserts and food justice issues, Mari Gallagher, will present her research on Chicago’s food deserts from 2006 to the present at a public lecture at RU’s Chicago Campus this Wednesday, April 25th, at 5:30pm. Gallagher has a flair for discussing a serious topic with a healthy dose of humor and optimism for the future.
I previously commented on a recent New York Times story on food deserts and obesity. Read Gallagher’s response to the Times’ story in this piece from the Chicago Tribune and join the conversation at RU on April 25th.
Don’t miss this free event that is part of RU’s New Deal Service Days!
