Food. It’s a topic that keeps expanding. And Loyola University Chicago will add to the national conversation on Saturday, September 7, when it hosts the Urban Food Symposium at its new Institute for Environmental Sustainability and Mundelein Center. Thought leaders from Chicago, the Midwest and across the nation will explore social justice, environmental and nutritional issues of food systems and offer innovative ways to approach local, alternative solutions. A municipal policy discussion will feature representatives from Chicago, San Francisco and Boston as well as presentations from more than 10 key players in the local food systems.

Among the speakers are Erika Allen (Growing Power), John Edel (The Plant), Kate Maehr (Chicago Food Depository), Bral Spight (Urban Ponics), Mei Ling Hui (Urban Forest and Urban Agriculture Coordinator, San Francisco Dept. of Environment) and Mari Gallagher. See the full list of speaker profiles. Check the calendar listing to the right for more details.
