The Food Justice Movement
is picking up speed. I’m seeing more and more events that bring attention to the fact that in a society with heavily subsidized agriculture and an overabundance of calories, many people still go hungry or don’t have access to nutritious food.
On Monday, November 13th, The Commonwealth Club will host a panel discussion titled: Healthful, Safe and Sustainable? How to Provide Good Food for Everyone.
The panel is Co-sponsored by the Sierra Club, and moderated by Paul Rauber, Senior Editor of Sierra Magazine. You can read the articles from the magazine’s November/December Green Cuisine issue here. The panel of health, nutritional and environmental advocates will discuss the health effects of the highly processed intensively marketed products of industrial agriculture and explore ways the movement can help bring healthy fresh foods to every community.
