The U.S. Food system provides abundant food for those who can afford it, but there are worrisome side effects – polluted water, depleted soils, 39 million food insecure people, rising chronic diseases, underpaid farm workers and farms going out of business. From the perspective of an organic farmer, the speaker will discuss alternatives and possible solutions. Free of charge and open to all.
