On November 14 2018, Keele University organised an event called ‘Food Unwrapped’ as part of the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) Festival of Social Sciences 2018. Speakers and delegates considered issues such as food poverty, food and well-being, food and waste, and recycling. The event was led by Emma Surman, Community Animation and Social Innovation Centre (CASIC). Ceri Morgan led a geopoetics activity whereby participants could choose a writing prompt and respond to it if they wished. Prompts included food memories, smellscapes, and a visit to Keele allotments.
