Whats on your plate? Food in multicultural LA

Los Angeles is an epicenter for the study of the connection between people and the food they eat. This program provides students appropriate lenses to explore different cultural norms around what, how, and when we eat. We also delve into the concept of food equity in an urban environment.

Learning objectives

Students explore the health outcomes of plant-based lifestyles as well as the environmental outcomes of such ways of being.
