Eating and Acting for Real Food in 2017

Taking time for new year real food reflections.  Are you considering a small (or big) change in your food habits -- what you buy, cook, grow? Are you looking for new ways to get involved in building a more healthy, sustainable and fair local food system?

Soda Politics: Taking on Big Soda (and Winning)

This past November, voters in three California cities passed new soda taxes, joining Philadelphia and Berkeley.  How did this industry become rich selling sugared water? Why and how are citizens and consumers who are concerned about health and environmental problems targeting the soda industry? Why are these tactics and campaigns controversial?

Our discussion will be based on Marion Nestle’s  research and writing including her book: Soda Politics: Taking on Big Soda (and Winning).
