If we know that fruits, vegetables, whole grains and less meat are what our bodies need for basic good health, why are we not eating better? How can we encourage healthy eating habits at home and compete with the mass marketing of junk food messages? All of these will be covered in detail at the Politics of Food Forum.
See and hear Michele Simon, Author of Appetite for Profit: How the Food Industry Undermines our Health and How to Fight Back; Bill Jeffery, LLB, National Coordinator of the Centre for Science in the Public Interest, a health advocacy group focusing on nutrition and food safety that publishes the Nutrition Action Healthletter; Patrick Habamenshi, development economist with FarmStart, an organization that integrates Canadian farmers, and former Minister of Agriculture for Rwand and Elbert van Donkersgood, Executive Director of the GTA Agricultural Action Committee.
