LATE at Auckland Museum

LATE: The Taste of Inequality

Past Event
TUE 11 OCT, 6pm

In the sprawling city of Auckland, its neighbourhoods have varying access to life’s necessities. What are ‘food deserts’ and are they here to stay? How can food bring communities together?

Auckland War Memorial Museum – Tāmaki Paenga Hira.

Chaired by Associate Professor and Head of Pacific Studies Damon Salesa, your expert panel is made up of professor of taxation Dr Lisa Marriott, former leader of Auckland City Mission Dame Diane Robertson, Eat My Lunch co-owner Lisa King and Dr Teuila Percival, senior lecturer at the School of Population Health and principal investigator on the Pacific Child Health Indicators project and OPIC 2.

Enjoy panoramic views of Auckland City from the Museum’s level three Event Centre, a delicious menu created by the chefs at Dawsons Catering, and a selection of drinks at the bar.
