This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

In celebration of Food Day, which seeks to bring together Americans from all walks of life to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way, join us for delicious free soup and bread (provided by the Jane Addams Hull–House Museum) at Chicago Architecture Foundation and a lively conversation that addresses food diversity in Chicago’s built environment. How do food trucks benefit Chicago and how could they be used in innovative ways? What was the impact and outcome of Chicago Architecture for Humanity–Chicago’s design for 2011 Fresh Moves Mobile Produce Market—a city bus that became a market on wheels to provide fresh produce to some of Chicago’s food deserts? What is the significance of heirloom seed libraries and how does this relate to the mission of historic preservation at the Hull–House Museum and design for change? Speakers include: Karen Weigert, City of Chicago Chief Sustainability Officer; Laura Bowe, co-director of Architecture for Humanity-Chicago; and Lisa Lee, director of the Hull–House Museum. This program is presented in collaboration with the Hull–House Museum as part of their ongoing Rethinking Soup series at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
