Food Choices Series: Whole Foods and Fiber (1 of 5)
January 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Free Adult Class! Hosted by Robin Matathias (Adjunct Professor of Environmental Studies at Keene State College).
Food Choices is a series of classes exploring the connection between our food choices, food production systems, and their impacts on human and environmental health. Each day we make decisions about what to eat, and this simple daily act can have profound outcomes. These classes will teach you to make food choices based on the water use, land requirements, energy use, and waste that go into producing what we eat.
Professor Matathias has been teaching at Keene State College since 1997, in both the Environmental Studies and Music Departments. She specializes in teaching courses on Food, Health, and the Environment, which explores how diet, food production, and farming affects both human and environmental health, and Rethinking Energy, which explores our current energy use and resulting problems, and how to move towards a sustainable energy future.
