Free Lunch & Learn Program this Wednesday, Oct. 16!


Wake Forest Innovation Quarter invites the public to a free Lunch and Learn program to explore the changes in downtown Winston-Salem’s food environment throughout the decades and hear about the challenges the shift has caused within the surrounding neighborhoods and African American community.

Led by Margaret Savoca of the Department of Epidemiology and Prevention at Wake Forest School of Medicine, the program will feature a film and photography exhibit entitled “The Making of Foodways & Roadways” which combines the voices of those who have lived in the downtown area throughout the years with photos of youth and archival and present day images.

The exhibit is a joint project between Wake Forest Translational Sciences Institute and Wake Forest University Documentary Film Program.
