Food Day: Mapping Ways of Knowing Food Across Campus

A discussion with Scott Pampuch, the distinguished chef who is now the directior of the University Dining Service, and Valentine Cadieux, Sociology.
On the occasion of Food Day on campus and on campuses across the nation, we will discuss a project to build an interactive map of different ways of understanding and exploring food on campus.

Valentine Cadieux is a researcher and lecturer in Sociology and Geography who studies and teaches about the ways that groups work together to justify and organize land use and food policy reforms.

Scott Pampuch has been active in sustainability on a local, regional and national level for the last ten years. As the founder of the award-winning Minneapolis restaurant Corner Table, Pampuch is known for incorporating local foods from family farms into handcrafted menus. Additionally, he created the sustainable supper series Tour de Farm and was featured on Ovation Network’s “In Search of Food” and the Celebrity Chef Tour Dinner Series.  He was named director of University Dining Service in March of 2013.

This discussion occurred Thursday, October 24, 2013, at 4:00pm in 125 Nolte.
