Nourishing the City: The Rise of the Urban Food Question
Tuesday 29th April 2014 @4.30 – 6.00 pm
in St Andrew’s in the Square, 1 St Andrew’s Square, Glasgow G1 5PP
Prof Kevin Morgan, Dean of Engagement, Professor of Governance and Development, School of Planning and Geography, University of Cardiff

In this lecture, Prof Kevin Morgan will explain why cities are becoming food policy actors for a whole series of reasons, largely to do with public health, social justice and ecological integrity.  He will give examples of urban food pioneers from North America, Asia, Latin America and Europe, focusing in particular on the politics of the public plate, showing how cities are using their power of purchase to deliver good food to vulnerable consumers. The lecture will also discuss what governments and civil society can do to promote good food for all. Organised by the Glasgow Centre for Population Health

A wee daud o' theology...

'Earthly goods are given to be used, not to be collected. In the wilderness God gave Israel the manna every day, and they had no need to worry about food and drink. Indeed, if they kept any of the manna over until the next day, it went bad. In the same way, the disciple must receive his portion from God every day. If he stores it up as a permanent possession, he spoils not only the gift, but himself as well, for he sets his heart on accumulated wealth, and makes it a barrier between himself and God. Where our treasure is, there is our trust, our security, our consolation and our God. Hoarding is idolatry.' - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Holy City is most generously hosted by the congregation and minister (Peter Gardner) of Renfield St Stephen's Centre in their Centre. We are deeply grateful for their long-standing support and hospitality. Nor should we forget those other stars and starlettes from RSS, our seductively lovely Tea Team: Sheila, Helen, Graham, Fiona & Alec.
