What Does Our Food Eat? – Eggs, Chickens, and Food Systems in Pastocalle, Ecuador
This summer Melissa Chapnick spent six weeks living and working in Pastocalle, Ecuador. Working in conjunction with Dr. Lora Iannotti of Washington University, Melissa spent this time exploring the potential of eggs to improve infant nutrition. Her project immersed her in a country in transition – where current generations are making the shift from subsistence agriculture, to living in urban centers. This shift brings with it important questions about the food system, which she touched on in an independent exploration of chicken production practices. Melissa will discuss the issues of developing food systems through eggs, a food item with which we are all familiar.
