ACES lecture focuses on urban food systems

A leader in rebuilding urban food systems through programs centered around food security and social welfare will give a free presentation today as part of Aspen Center for Environmental Studies’ Jessica Catto Dialogue series.

Michael Curtain of the DC Central Kitchen will give a lecture titled “Rules for Righteous Entrepreneurs.” The event will be at 6 p.m. at Paepcke Auditorium.

Curtain will explore specific decisions from DC Central Kitchen’s most challenging situations to illustrate the rules of righteous entrepreneurship and how those rules have created tangible practices for social enterprises, according to an announcement by ACES.

The Jessica Catto Dialogues honor the environmental legacy of Jessica Hobby Catto through a speaker series featuring visionary thinkers and doers from all realms of environmental concerns. The series is supported by the Catto Shaw family in Jessica’s memory.
