This week, Penn students are doing much more than just eating food. They’re also talking about food-related issues, from sustainability to nutrition.

The events are part of “Food Week: Eat to Live,” sponsored by the University’s food service management company, Bon Appétit at Penn Dining. Events include a Feb. 3 dinner and conversation, “Mind the Food Gap,” bringing together various members of the community around issue of food justice. A Sustainable meal will be served at the event.

Later in the week, the Penn community can learn about nutritious eating from a dietician and take a tour of the Bon Appétit kitchen. There also will be will be a screening of Robert Kenner’s Oscar-nominated film, “Food Inc.”
