Posted on Monday, February 4, 2013

Join Macdonald Campus faculty, staff, students and alumni for the annual celebration of Sir William C. Macdonald, founder of Macdonald College, one of McGill’s greatest benefactors and the fourth Chancellor of the University, on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 10 a.m at Mac’s Centennial Centre Ballroom. This year’s event features a panel discussion on The Industry of Food: Why We Eat What We Eat. Some of the topics of discussion to be discussed by the panelists include what are the impacts of the choices we make when we buy our groceries; how do corporations make decisions on how to produce and distribute their products, and what impact do those choices have on our health; and what are the economical impacts of our eating habits, not just on the food industry but on our national and global economy? A Q&A period will follow the panel discussion.

It gets underway at 10 a.m. in the Centennial Ballroom. Learn more here.
