Hidden Costs of Food In NYC

Friday, Mar 25, 2011

What are the real environmental costs associated with eating in New York? Is local agriculture really more environmentally friendly than non-local food? Are New Yorkers willing to eat in-season only and only eat what New York has the comparative advantage to produce? Does New Yorkers' penchant for eating out complicate the issue more?

Sponsor: Museum of the City of New York. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Moveable Feast: Fresh Produce and the NYC Green Cart Program.

Speakers: Peter Hoffman, chef and owner of Savoy; Gabrielle Langholtz, editor of Edible Manhattan; James E. McWilliams, author of Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly (Little, Brown, 2009); David Owen, author of Green Metropolis: Why Living Smaller, Living Closer, and Driving Less Are the Keys to Sustainability (Riverhead, 2009); and others evaluate the environmental and social costs and benefits of the city's food infrastructure.

Date: Friday, March 25, 6:30 pm

Location: Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue @ 103rd St

RSVP: MCNY Reservations required
