Lexicon of Sustainability: Know Your Food, part 1
“Our primary tool is language. We tell aspirational stories of real people sharing sustainable solutions to help drive behavior change. By illuminating the meanings behind these powerful ideas, we help people to pay closer attention to how they eat, what they buy, and where their responsibility begins for creating a healthier, safer food system.”
We will show 5 short films from the Lexicon of Food about food systems in America and concerns of food security that plague the world.

This film examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods. Adopting a more informed diet can benefit our health as well as our community.
