A brief guide to combating pseudoscience, misinformation and misunderstanding in the world of food. Making the boring messages of nutrition science exciting, and helping people celebrate uncertainty and nuance.

There are many people working directly or indirectly on food across the University’s staff and student body, and across a vast range of disciplines. Food Thinkers Lunches aim to provide an informal atmosphere for the stimulation and exchange of ideas, and the building of collaborations. Each lunch has a theme and two speakers who will speak briefly (5-10 minutes) on their work as it relates to the theme.
The lunches are hosted by Linacre College in their Small Dining Room, an ideal venue for people with like-minded interests to gather and eat together in a convivial and relaxed atmosphere.
The lunches are sponsored by the IFSTAL programme (www.ifstal.ac.uk), the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food (www.futureoffood.ox.ac.uk), the ECI Food Systems Group (www.eci.ox.ac.uk/research/food/index.html) and Linacre College (www.linacre.ox.ac.uk).
