On a global scale, there’s a very large percentage of us who are either suffering from obesity or suffering from hunger. Why is this? Why are some of the hungriest parts of the world places where we end up fighting wars? If we can change dinner and our eating habits, can we change the world? Ellen Gustafson addresses all these points and more in her insightful talk at TEDxLaJolla.
Ellen Gustafson is a sustainable food systems activist and social entrepreneur. She is the cofounder of Food Tank: The Food Think Tank and lectures around the world on global food issues. The cofounder of FEED Projects and the FEED Foundation, which have provided more than 60 million school meals to children in need, Gustafson has also worked at the U.N. World Food Program, ABC News, and the Council on Foreign Relations. Her first book, “We the Eaters: If We Change Dinner, We Can Change the World,” will be published by Rodale on May 20, 2014.
