Just Food Podcast Launch

Tuesday, October 03, 2017

Join us to celebrate the launch of Just Food, a new 6-part podcast series about cultivating justice and health, produced by the Berkeley Food Institute in partnership with the UC Berkeley Advanced Media Institute at the Graduate School of Journalism.

The event will feature a preview of our upcoming episode, “Leveling the Playing Field.” It will cover the story of the nation’s first sugar-sweetened beverage tax here in Berkeley—from how the measure came into law in 2014 to how the tax and its revenue are shaping the health of Berkeley residents now. The evening will also include a panel discussion and Q&A session with experts and community members interviewed in the podcast, followed by a reception with food and drinks.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration recommended. Register here.
