Dinner Disrupted: How We Eat

January 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$27 – $35

The food system in America– how we produce, process, distribute, and consume food—is broken. Market researcher and bestselling author Paco Underhill sets out to solve these problems and show us where our eating and driving lives are headed in his newest book, How We Eat: The Brave New World of Food and Drink. Underhill takes an upbeat, hopeful, and characteristically witty approach to how we can change the way we consume.

How We Eat reveals the future of food in surprising ways, like how the city is getting country-fied with the rise of farmer’s markets and rooftop farms; how supermarkets are on their way out with their most valuable real estate, their parking lot, for growing their own food and hosting community events; and how marijuana farmers, who have been using artificial light to grow a crop for years, have developed a playbook so mainstream merchants and farmers across the world can grow food in an uncertain future.

Please register to either watch from home on Zoom or in the Trefz Forum at the Westport Library. Signed copies of How We Eat are available for purchase.
