Posted By Aimee Wilson - Occasions To Savor

In suburban Philadelphia at Delaware Valley College, a three-day symposium called The Precarious Alliance kicked off with a screening of the 2009 Academy-Award nominated Food, Inc.  As an alumni of Delaware Valley College (affectionately known as DelVal) and someone increasingly interested in sustainability and eco-friendly or planet-friendly practices, I eagerly signed on to learn more about the first in a series of symposia, our food system and how we adapt to a changing world.

I learned new nuggets of information today.  From the movie, Food, Inc., I had no idea so many products contained a corn derivative.  Also, I suspected workers who processed our food, particularly meat, would be affected by how mechanized the food processing systems are.  However, I did not realize the apparent disregard for the care of the product (e.g., animal for the meat) was also extended to the workers.

The highlight of the evening was hearing from the Director, Robert Kenner, who graduated from a Bucks County high school, fielded questions from the attentive audience.

Day two begins bright and early tomorrow.  I look forward to new insights on this timely topic.

 

Savor life's best,

Aimee
