posted on October 21, 2007 at 5:28 am

Alice Waters will be giving a speech at the Centers for Disease Control entitled “Knowing Our Food: Science, Policy, and Student Health” on November 14th.

From Georgia Organics (who is co-sponsoring the event):

Alice Waters work connects health, school curriculum, farm policy, and the pleasure of delicious local food. As executive chef and owner of Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, Alice Waters spearheaded the revolution in American cuisine toward fresh, local food. Her dedication to sustainable agriculture has been a key component of the economic boom for fresh, local food in the San Francisco Bay area, and she is a passionate advocate for wellbeing through attention to our food sources and culture. Her pioneering Edible Schoolyard project, in which middle school children grow their own lunch and teachers use gardens for science lessons and recipes for social studies, is thriving in Berkeley, has been planted in New Orleans and may expand to Pittsburgh and Brooklyn. Through her creation of the Chez Panisse Foundation, Alice Waters brings to life cultural and educational programs that demonstrate the transformative power of growing, cooking, and sharing food.

Seating for the free event is limited and you must RSVP here.

The event will be held at 4pm at the Global Communications Center Auditorium
located at 1600 Clifton Road NE, Building 19, Decatur, GA 30030.

There will also be a 5PM Book Signing and Reception to follow at the adjacent Global Health Odyssey Museum.
