Geography and Culture of Food
Our group project is  focused on how food is utilized by various cultures around the globe. Often,  the same basic food products like potatoes or rice are transformed by  different food cultures to create different methods of consumption. Geography  heavily affects the means of food production in determining what can be grown  and how food can be cooked. The geographical climate that different cultures  live in also heavily affects the food they consume. Overall, our main  research is focusing on how different food cultures are affected by  geographical circumstances.

The Great Food Debate
The overarching theme  to our presentation is the tradeoffs between two forms of agriculture:  industrial and organic. Ultimately we will be breaking down this topic into  three separate subtopic of great importance.

Don't be Cocky: The Ethics of the Chicken Industry
Nearly 9 billion  chickens are raised and slaughtered for their meat each year in the US, not  including the hens used for eggs. Many industries today use marketing labels,  using claims such as "free range" to falsely advertise ethical  treatment of chickens, masking the reality of the gruesome processes  implemented by these companies. This project is meant to expose the horrid  conditions in which these chickens are bred, raised, and slaughtered.

Where is Our Food Coming From?
Our presentation will initially display a video asking fellow students what their opinions are on the cost of the meal plan, and what changes they would like to see at the cafeteria. We will also interview Bucknell students who regularly dine at the Elaine Langone Center Cafeteria what food they would like to see at the cafeteria. We will display a short presentation that conveys the results of our findings and discuss solutions to the changes that Bucknell students want to see at the cafeteria. We will also compare Bucknell University's campus meal plan to other universities.
