Foodie Alert: Be at the PDX downtown Hilton this Saturday (May 16) at 9 a.m. to hear award-winning author Marion Nestle speak on “What to Eat: Personal Responsibility vs. Social Responsibility,” as part of the Linus Pauling Institute’s fifth conference on Diet and Optimum Health. It’s FREE.
Nestle is the Paulette Goddard Professor at New York University. She’ll discuss economic and political factors that influence what we eat and ask which counts more – individual choice or food company marketing and government policy.
