"A New England Food Vision: Linking Food Justice, Healthier Eating, and Sustainable Farming"
Speaker: Brian Donahue, Associate Professor of American Environmental Studies at Brandeis University and author of A New England Food Vision.
The EAT/Lancet "Planetary Health Diet" has stimulated conversation about connections between healthier eating and the health of the planet, centering mostly on reducing meat consumption and our carbon footprint. A few years earlier, "A New England Food Vision" engaged the same issues on a regional basis, also tying them to food justice and community development on the one hand, and protecting the surrounding forest on the other. This talk will give an update on the NEFV, and explore the kinds of policies and investments needed to bring it to fruition.
