Food literacy is a term that is increasingly being used by a number of varied professionals who have an interest in food. These professionals include educators, home economists, dietitians, and public health workers. Not surprisingly each profession brings their own nuanced interpretation.

The Food Literacy International Partnership (FLIP) is offering a series of webinars where food literacy scholars and practitioners will discuss ideas of what food literacy is and what it looks like in practice. These discussion will be informed by research and everyday experiences.

Please join us for this exciting event by registering your interest in attending. We hope this first webinar will stimulate thinking and
debate on the topic.
