Food activist Vandana Shiva visted Ohio University's campus, learning gardens and the surrounding town of Athens.
Students collaborated with local businesses including Village Bakery to receive cooking instructions and later presented their prepared food at the Taste of Athens event in the university's library.
The interdisciplinary theme allows students to take classes across various colleges in the university to learn about food from multiple perspectives.
Students learn outside the classroom as well while taking courses from the Food Studies Theme. The Plant Biology Learning Gardens are home to various classes and student initiatives such as Sustainable Agriculture and the Student Market.
