SAG 250   Sustainable Food Systems* (3 Hours)

Prerequisites : SAG 245.

Students in this course will develop a critical perspective on existing and desirable food systems, from field to fork. The concept of a food system will be explored, and students will apply that concept to develop an overview of the existing social system from production, through distribution, to consumption of food. Issues including food system policy, systemic impacts on environment, health, and social equity will be discussed and evaluated. Through experiential learning, students will apply research and observation of food systems in their community as well as others pursuing goals of sustainability to inform their own career and social aspirations.
