Defending Culinary Freedom: Why Keep Food Legal and the Bill of Rights Protect Your Right to Make Your Own Food Choices
12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
Harvard Law School
Baylen J. Linnekin, a lawyer and food writer who holds an LL.M. in agricultural and food law, is the founder and executive director of Keep Food Legal, a Washington, DC-based nonpartisan grassroots nonprofit. Baylen’s talk will address food bans and food’s fundamental influence on the language and spirit of both the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. In addition, he will discuss Keep Food Legal, the first nationwide membership organization devoted to culinary freedom—the right of every American to grow, raise, produce, buy, sell, cook, and eat the foods of their own choosing.
Cosponsored by the Food Law Society, Federalist Society, HLS Republicans, and the Harvard Health Law and Policy Clinic.
