Abstract: Among other things, food can both be our sustenance, necessary to our survival, and our downfall at the same time, with alarmingly high rates of obesity and diabetes related to overeating, and for women specifically, high rates of eating disorders. The politics of the food industry have started to become more transparent through the efforts of academics and consumer advocates, as well as public health and environmental advocacy groups. This article explores the pedagogical results of teaching a class entitled Politics of Food, and assesses the student learning outcomes for the course over two semesters through the lens of several service-learning projects.
