Disclaimer: Expect better food and more people

Every fortnight during term-time, a gathering of students, academic and research staff, business owners, and other food-related thinkers and ‘do-ers’ from the city of Oxford meet over lunch. The aim of these lunches is to offer a relaxed, interesting, and convivial environment for the food community across Oxford to meet and get to know each other better.

Sponsored by the Oxford Martin Future of Food Programme, the ECI Food Group, IFSTAL programme, and Linacre College, the lunches involve two (very) short talks on a theme, and discussion between those present. In their second year running, the lunches have already covered a wide range of themes – from foresight methods in food systems, to gut microbiomes, archaeological explorations of migration and food, and the chemistry and psychology underlying eating experience.
