Tuesday 1:40 - 4:20 p.m.
J.R.R. Tolkien notes, "If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” Food is our most shared experience! It connects pop culture, cultural identity, athletic performance, human rights, family traditions, body image, genetic engineering, corporate ethics, religious practice, history, and our future. This course uses food studies to connect college to our lives.
Students in Food for Thought will be working at the Heller Center Garden on Friday August 23rd. You will be working. Therefore, you MUST abide by the following:
1. Bring a hat
2. You must bring sunscreen.
3. You must bring a water bottle.
4. You MUST wear closed-toed, comfortable shoes (you will be walking there and back). No sandals or flip-flops.
5. It is recommended that you wear long pants, as you may get some scratches from the plants (yucca and cactus abound). However, this is up to you.
6. It is recommended that you do NOT wear spaghetti strap shirts due to sun exposure.
7. It is recommended that you wear older clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
