GradFood (formerly SNAPP) is an interdisciplinary association of graduate students working across sectors to share their work and ideas regarding all things food and agriculture. GradFood brings UC Berkeley graduate students from diverse disciplines together to learn and teach about something that affects everyone: FOOD! Food is more than meets the eye, and we delve into issues that make food both an intellectually stimulating field and central to our daily lives. Our monthly dinners are a forum to discuss food and agriculture issues from a variety of perspectives, and topics include everything from health to agroecology to economic development (and beyond!). The group provides opportunities to meet students from other departments, collaborate on and present research, and network with the sustainable food systems community and the new Berkeley Food Institute. We emphasize education that can inform both public policy and grassroots food systems change. Join us at the table!
