Welcome to the collective food blog by the students enrolled in the CSUF H&SS Study Abroad Summer Program in Copenhagen, Denmark, July-August 2019. Here you’ll read about the students’ experiences learning about and indulging in Danish food, as well as about Danish efforts toward socially just and environmentally sustainable food practices.
