K-State Food Science Cafe offers interactive conversation

The first monthly Food Science Cafe will be 7-9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29, at the Bluestem Bistro, 1219 Moro, in Manhattan’s Aggieville district.

Everyone is invited to attend this public conversation about food safety, hosted by Douglas Powell, K-State associate professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology and scientific director of the International
Food Safety Network

"Food safety affects all of us from farm-to-fork," Powell said. "People can come in grab a coffee or other beverage and just chat about their concerns. The first Food Science Cafe will also give me an overview of what the community is concerned about in order to better plan speakers for the next gatherings. The Food Science Cafe will be an opportunity to
learn, have fun, meet new people and have an enjoyable evening; that’s really what it’s all about."
