    MOFAD Roundtable is a program from the Museum of Food and Drink that explores controversial food issues through live debate and discussion. This event took place on April 27, 2014 at the Food Book Fair. Since the introduction of the genetically engineered Flavr Savr tomato in 1994, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have been at the center of a polarized debate. With the increasing push for GMO labeling in the United States, public interest in GMOs has reached a fever pitch. The second episode of MOFAD Roundtable, presented in partnership with the Food Book Fair, brought together a science journalist, a consumer rights advocate, a science policy researcher, and a representative from the biotechnology industry to debate this deeply divisive issue. Panelists addressed issues of regulation and labeling, the ethics of patenting living organisms, potentially positive applications of genetic engineering, and the appropriate role of biotechnology industry in the food supply. Panelists: Cathleen Enright, Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) Michael Hansen, Consumers Union Amy Harmon, the New York Times Margaret Mellon, Science Policy Consultant Dave Arnold, Museum of Food and Drink (Moderator)

      MOFAD Roundtable is a program from the Museum of Food and Drink that explores controversial food issues through live debate and discussion. This event took place on December 5, 2013 at the CUNY School of Public Health. In September 2012, the City of New York passed a law restricting the sale of sugary beverages larger than 16 ounces in food service establishments like restaurants, movie theaters, and mobile vendors. Though the law has been put on hold by an ongoing legal battle, it remains one of Mayor Bloomberg's boldest public health initiatives. At the first MOFAD Roundtable, we brought together a nutritionist, an anti-hunger advocate, an economist, and a libertarian to debate the soda regulation, the government's role in protecting public health, how the regulation addresses personal choice, and what this all means for the future of food policy in the US and abroad. Panelists: Joel Berg, New York City Coalition Against Hunger Parke Wilde, Tufts University J. Justin Wilson, the Center for Consumer Freedom Lisa Young, New York University Dave Arnold, Museum of Food and Drink (Moderator)

        MOFAD Roundtable is a program from the Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) that explores controversial food issues through live debate and discussion. This event took place on June 19, 2014 at New York University. In recent years, several major food manufacturers have begun making "better for you" foods. Supporters believe these products could help curb diet-related disease while also bolstering the bottom line, but many argue that Big Food has no role to play in public health. The third episode of MOFAD Roundtable, presented in partnership with New York University's Food Studies Department, brought together and public health attorney, consumer insights expert, nutrition researcher, and global health expert to debate this controversial issue. Panelists addressed the ethical responsibility of food manufacturers to provide nutritious products, the consumer's role in making healthy choices, how healthy food can be scaled up and effectively marketed, and whether industry attempts to offer healthy alternatives reflect a genuine concern for public health. Panelists: Howard Moskowitz, iNovum Christina Roberto, Harvard School of Public Health Michele Simon, Eat Drink Politics Derek Yach, the Vitality Institute Dave Arnold, Museum of Food and Drink (Moderator)

          Learn about the politics and health of vegetable oils, which are in virtually all restaurants and all packaged foods we eat. How do they affect health? Why have fried foods in restaurants become especially unhealthy, since the trans-fat ban? How did tropical oils become unfairly vilified? And is olive oil any different? The vegetable-oil industry has been the most powerful actor in nutrition science since the 1940s, and American consumption of them has grown more than any other food in the 20th century. Take a tour through their history, politics and science.

                      MOFAD Roundtable is a program from the Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) that explores controversial food issues through live debate and discussion. This event took place on October 16, 2014 at the Manny Cantor Center. Global meat consumption is projected to double by 2020 due to increased demand for animal protein and population growth. Other research suggests that livestock production accounts for nearly 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. These facts raise pressing questions: How large a role should animal agriculture play in our food system? Should the ideal human diet include meat, or should we focus on decreasing or eliminating meat consumption altogether? How will the ethical decisions we make today shape our diet in the future? The answers to these questions are hotly contested, but finding solutions is in everyone's interest. The fourth MOFAD Roundtable brought together a distinguished panel of experts and sparked a lively debate on the ethics of eating animals, the future of cultured meats and other non-meat alternatives, whether there can be "good" meat, and more. Panelists: Mark Budolfson, Princeton University Isha Datar, New Harvest Patrick Martins, Heritage Foods USA Peter Singer, Princeton University Dave Arnold, Museum of Food and Drink (Moderator)
