Center for Food Studies

Bard College at Simon’s Rock launched The Center for Food Studies in 2013 to advance the community’s knowledge of food as a cultural force and awareness of our responsibilities as stewards of a sustainable food system.

The Center provides a forum for collaboration, communication, and learning across a variety of food realms by integrating food studies into existing Simon’s Rock programs; presenting non-credit workshops for personal and professional education; collaborating with community partners to sponsor lectures, conferences, and other educational events on campus and across the region; creating opportunities for students and local organizations to benefit from internships and other work/study arrangements; and partnering creatively on and off campus to develop awareness of critical local, regional, and global issues related to food, leading to productive connections and action.
