About Our Table

Our Table: Conversation, connection and communication

Held the second Friday of each month as part of #LetsTalkFood Friday, Our Table conversations bring MSU faculty, staff, students and stakeholders together to discuss issues facing our food future and brainstorm potential solutions. These discussions offer an opportunity to practice communication skills in person while gaining new perspectives on where food comes from and how it impacts our health and the planet.

Crafting Our Table from fallen MSU campus trees

July 31, 2017

Nathan Shaver hand-built his family’s 10-person dining room table. His wife’s family is spread across the state and their home is the midpoint. He said he wanted to create a space where the family can unite to celebrate food, each other and community.
