Foodprint NYC event

posted by Jason Kottke Feb 01, 2010

Foodprint is not your typical NYC food gathering. From Edible Geography:

The free afternoon program will consist of four panel discussions: "Zoning Diet," about the hidden corsetry of policy, access, and economics that gives shape to urban food distribution; "Culinary Cartography," a look at the kinds of things we can learn about New York City when we map its food types and behaviours; "Edible Archaeology," about the socio-economic forces, technical innovations, and events that have shaped New York food history, in the context of the present; and "Feast, Famine, and Other Scenarios," an opportunity to collaboratively speculate on changes to the edible landscape of New York in both the near and distant future.

The event takes place in NYC on Feb 27th; it's free and the entire thing will be available online as well.
