Future Food Institute is honoured to host the “Hungry Book Club”, a free 3-week series featuring renowned experts on human behavior, the impact of technology, well-being, and food and lifestyle trends.
Author Eve Turow-Paul and guests discuss the impact of ANXIETY, LONELINESS, and a search for PURPOSE on food and lifestyle trends—past, present and future.
Hungry for conversation, community, and insights? During this 3-week Book Club Eve Turow-Paul, author of Hungry: Avocado Toast, Instagram Influencers, and Our Search for Connection and Meaning, will review a section of her book, place her research into the context of COVID-19, share exclusive findings from the Hungry Study, and host a guest expert who will reveal new insights on human behavior, well-being, and the impact of our virtual environment.
This book club is for those who want to better understand what needs motivate human behavior, how our virtual environments are impacting our well-being, and how food and lifestyle culture can help mitigate anxiety, facilitate community-building, and help people find purpose—especially as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Join the Hungry Book Club to connect with other thinkers, doers and change-makers, exchange in thoughtful discourse around food and lifestyle culture, human behavior, and well-being, and ask questions of and learn from author Eve Turow-Paul and her expert guests. Book Club members can submit questions prior to each session to help craft the discourse.
