Himmelheber to lead Philosophers Café talk on ‘Food Waste, Insecurity’

The next Philosophers Café is at 7 p.m. Thursday (Nov. 14) at Kavarna coffeehouse, 143 N. Broadway in downtown Green Bay. UW-Green Bay Assistant Professor of Social Work Sarah Himmelheber is the presenter/moderator on the topic “Food Waste and Food Insecurity.” Participants will consider the fact that while food pantries continue to report increasing demand, the level of “acceptable waste” in the larger American food production, distribution and consumption chain seems to be static or growing. The Philosophers’ Café, a monthly gathering organized by the philosophy programs at UW-Green Bay and St. Norbert College, is free and open to anyone interested in a laid-back, fun and friendly conversation about issues of the day. (Bring a canned good and/or friend and join in the conversation.) Read more.
