Exploring Social Eating

Wed 26 Sep 2018, 6pm–11pm, Foodhall, 121 Eyre St. S10 4QW

A talk with Robin Dunbar (Evolutionary Psychology, University of Oxford - his recent Breaking Bread report revealed that regularly eating alone is the biggest single factor for unhappiness besides existing mental illness) and Megan Blake (Food Justice, University of Sheffield). Informal questions and answers afterwards. The talk is accompanied by a meal provided by volunteers. Part of The National Food Service Symposium, the first of its kind on the emerging non-hierarchical, non-charity, open source social eating movement. It aims to foster a collective knowledge base at a time of significant social innovation among problems of food poverty, social isolation and exclusion, and food waste. Imagine a future with free eating spaces on every street. The Foodhall Project Sheffield examines this utopian vision, with a series of free talks and meals. Free to attend, part of the 2018 Festival of the Mind. Festival of the Mind
