Event description

Description

There are many people working directly or indirectly on food across the University’s staff and student body, and across a vast range of disciplines. Food Thinkers Lunches aim to provide an informal atmosphere for the stimulation and exchange of ideas, and the building of collaborations. Each lunch has a theme and two speakers who will speak briefly (5-10 minutes) on their work as it relates to the theme.
