Curious about the ways in which laws and regulations affect societal perceptions of food? Michigan State University (MSU) invites you to pull up a chair and join a conversation about food policy and how it influences our taste.
Our Table is a series of roundtable discussions in which MSU brings together community members and leaders, industry and farm workers and producers, scientists, academics and other experts for meaningful conversation on food-related topics. It is the cornerstone of Food@MSU, an initiative led by the colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Arts and Letters and Communication Arts and Sciences, aimed at encouraging dialogue to navigate misinformation about food so consumers can make more informed decisions.

Science communicator Sheril Kirshenbaum serves as the moderator for Our Table discussion. Members of the audience are encouraged to join the conversation by sharing questions, insights and concerns.
The Our Table discussion on June 19 will occur at the end of the first day of the Global Food Law Program’s Current Issues Conference. The public is welcome to attend this free event. Parking is available in lot 62W (in front of the IM West building — see campus map for more info) for those without a campus parking pass.
We hope to see you there!
