With the Toronto Board of Health having just formally adopted a new city-wide food strategy, the timing is perfect for a truly cross-disciplinary discussion that explores the past, present, and future of food and the city. What’s more, as a multi-cultural, Green Belt-surrounded, food-processing hub, Toronto is particularly rich in infrastructural opportunities and challenges, as well as creative individuals-- the perfect place to bring people together for a fresh look at the city, through the lens of food.
Edible City contributors Kathryn Borel Jr. and Erik Rutherford read as part of a special food-themed edition of the Toronto Reading Series. Also on the night's bill: Dr. Joey Schulman (Healthy Sin Food) and Rick Gallop (The 2010 Revised G.I. Diet).
