What would the world look like if everyone had access to healthy food and we all knew where our groceries came from?
Frances Moore Lappé can speak to that. She started a revolution about food, climate and health for people and the planet 50 years ago with her best-selling book “Diet for a Small Planet“. It was the first major book to note the environmental impact of meat production as a contributor to global food scarcity. Michael Pollan, the author of the hugely influential 2006 book The Omnivore’s Dilemma, calls Lappe’s work “one of the most visionary books of the last 50 years”.
It’s no secret that our agricultural systems need to adapt to climate change. Lappé and her daughter, author of “Diet for a Hot Planet“, Anna Lappé, have spent their careers advocating for food justice and sustainability. Join us for an engaging discussion about the intersection of our food systems and climate change with these two amazing changemakers. They will talk about how what is on our plates affects our health and our planet, and how our everyday acts are a vote for the kind of world we want to live in.
