Fast Food: A Global Perspective

Event Type: Community Services
Date: 10/10/2018
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 Celebrated food historian Andrew Smith, educator in the Food Studies Department at the New School and author/editor of 32 books, including, Fast Food: The Good, Bad and Hungry (Reaktion, 2016), will discuss why, for better and worse, fast food is the most pervasive culinary trend of our time. At its heart are large multinational chains, running an estimated one million outlets in virtually every corner of the world, serving hundreds of millions of customers every day. Despite this success– or perhaps because of it– critics have charged the fast food industry with directly and indirectly harming the environment, undermining the health of customers, degrading the diets of children, and underpaying its workers. Find out why this industry has been so successful and learn about our options for the future.
