Trinity River faculty members Justin Brumit, Carol Everhart, Chad Wooley, Corena White, and Meryl Cope led a lively panel discussion today on TR’s common reader, Where Am I Eating? by Kelsey Timmerman. More than 40 students, faculty and staff participated in the book talk, and many contributed their own thoughts on the origins of the food we eat. Attendees were left to consider for themselves whether or not their new-found knowledge of the global food economy should affect their choices as consumers in restaurants and grocery stores.
