Experts offer food for thought at museum event
The Los Altos History Museum has scheduled “Eating Your Values,” a panel discussion on making food choices that positively impact ongoing social concerns 7 p.m. Aug. 15 in the Orchard Room of the Los Altos main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road.
The event will begin with an informal reception at 6:30 p.m., with appetizers provided by Epicurean Group, at the museum, 51 S. San Antonio Road.
The museum’s current exhibition, “Silicon Valley Eats: A Taste for Innovation” explores the history of food, from the region’s agricultural roots to today’s cutting-edge sustainability efforts. Panel members will go beyond the plate, raising questions about the quality of fruits and vegetables, the sustainability of farming methods, the place of animals in the web of life and the importance of gathering people together at the table.
