Food for Thought is a monthly interactive seminar series organized by students from the Tempe student Food Group and the Polytech Radicles club and sponsored by the Swette Center for Sustainable Food Systems. Hosted at ASU’s Tempe, Polytechnic and Downtown campuses, these seminars aim to build a community of students, faculty, staff, and others from across the region working on food system sustainability issues. In these collaborative sessions, we will share new knowledge and engage in hands-on activities to put this knowledge into action.
