Cafe Scientifique | How 'bout them apples?: Food environments and their effect on what you eat
Montana's food environment, sustainability to be discussed at March 7 Café Scientifique.
Café Scientifique community events have always blended scientific discussions with food and drink. At the next café, food itself will take center stage.
Selena Ahmed and Carmen Byker Shanks, co-directors of the Food and Health Lab at Montana State University and professors in MSU’s College of Education, Health and Human Development, will present “How ‘bout them apples?: Food environments and their effect on what you eat” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, at the Baxter Hotel Ballroom in downtown Bozeman. The event is hosted by MSU’s INBRE and COBRE programs and is free and open to the public.
The presentation will highlight recent research showing how access to high-quality fruits and vegetables (or lack thereof) strongly influences whether healthy foods make it to a person’s breakfast, lunch or dinner plate.
