Keira Amstutz '91 and Indiana Humanities Council Present 'Food for Thought'
March 4, 2010
March 4, 2010, Greencastle, Ind. — According to Keira Amstutz, president and CEO of the Indiana Humanities Council, "The food we eat does more than sustain us. It helps to define us. The ways we grow, prepare and eat food, the role we give it in our daily routines, and the rituals and traditions that surround it in our homes and communities speak volumes about who we are."
Amstutz, a 1991 graduate of DePauw University, writes in today's Indianapolis Star, "For that reason, the Indiana Humanities Council has launched 'Food for Thought,' a two-year celebration and examination of food and the role it plays in our culture. The council invites you to get involved and to learn about what the food you eat says about you, your family, your community and your state ... Food for Thought encourages Hoosiers to think, read and talk about food through events, festivals, public conversations, a traveling exhibit, community gardens, visiting farms and more. We'll consider our personal connections to food as well as global issues surrounding food, such as hunger, nutrition, food production, agricultural innovation and obesity."
Keira Amstutz was named to the leadership posts at the Humanities Council in March 2008.Back
