Every fall, Mount Mercy faculty facilitate an interdisciplinary, semester-long conversation aimed at challenging the community to reflect in deep ways about the important topics of our time. This year's topic is food. Setting the Table: Pleasures & Perils of Food in America will look at how food shapes us as a people. All events are free and begin at 7 PM in the Flaherty Community Room (204 Basile Hall).
