College of DuPage will host a free lecture titled "Food Matters: Examining Issues of Environmental Justice in Meat Production" from 4 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16, in the Student Resource Center, Room 3114, on the College's main campus, 425 Fawell Blvd., in Glen Ellyn.

This presentation, cosponsored by the College of DuPage Community Education Farm and the University of North Carolina Greensboro Environmental Studies Program, will examine the production of meat in the United States as it relates to basic issues of environmental justice, including the treatment of animals, workers, the environment and the health of the community.

During this lecture, presenters Deborah Adelman, Professor of English, and Shamili Ajgaonkar Sandiford, Professor of Biology, will explore options that meet current needs without compromising the well-being of future generations. As educators working in two fields of knowledge, Professors Adelman and Sandiford will provide an integrated approach to understanding, internalizing and confronting sustainability challenges that connect issues of aesthetics, economics, the environment and social equity.

This program is free and open to the public; however, space is limited and RSVPs are required. For more information and to RSVP, please contact Deborah Adelman at (630) 942-3406 or
