People and Food
It takes a community such as Ohio Wesleyan’s to raise awareness about food matters here and around the world.
- Budding Gardeners – Cultivating and collaborating on vegetable gardens grown by children at OWU’s Early Childhood Center.
- Back to Basics – Hundreds of years ago, sustainable agriculture was practiced and prized by people of Kosrae Island of Micronesia. As Professor Jim Peoples explains, modernization is taking a heavy toll on their lives and lifestyles.
- Global Environmental Change and Food Production – That’s what Professor Laurie Anderson and her students studied in Brazil, as part of their recent Travel-Learning course. She shares more about her research in this Magazine.
- Feeding a Hungry World – Professor Mary Howard’s classes on “Health and Illness” and “African Peoples” came to life for her students in Tanzania last spring, as they discovered connections among poverty, illness, and malnutrition.
- Food Security: Politics and Policies – When politics, war, and climate change affect food production, it is the people who suffer.
- Pushing for Progress – “I believe that public service is about making government work best for those who are less fortunate.” During her 17 years in Congress, representing farm families and others in southern Missouri’s eighth Congressional District, Jo Ann Emerson ’72 has done just that.
- Taking a Bite Out of Hunger – Restaurateur Howard Greenstone ’83 is feeding bodies, souls, and spirits every day.
