Planetizen: Los Angeles’ Politicized Food Landscape

Join Next American City at Farmlab for lunch and the first talk in our
URBANEXUS lecture series, featuring Mark Vallianatos, co-author of The
Next Los Angeles: the struggle for a livable city. The lecture will
focus on Los Angeles’ politicized food landscape—from the city’s
agricultural heritage, food justice and the fast-food ban, to the
future of food in a city transformed by immigration and global trade.

Admission is free and includes lunch provided by Farmlab and a special
politics of food exhibit, as well as a performance by Chris
Hachadourian and Poorang Nori. Find directions and RSVP for the event
at americancity.org/urbanexus/la.
