Along with giving talks and leading discussions about sustainable eating, I am now immersed in research for my second book. The book will tell the compelling story of Britain in World War II -- and the rapid and deep food-system overhaul by Britain's Ministry of Food and willing citizens that ultimately fed everyone adequately during that tumultuous time. I'm excited to share some of the lessons from that wartime project that I think are applicable today. Check back soon for updates.
In November 2018, I'll be part of a panel at the national assembly of Food Secure Canada, an awesome organization that is an effective voice for healthier food and sustainable agriculture. I'll be one of the speakers in a 'fishbowl' discussion session, relating the story of food in WWII Britain and the successes and challenges of that historic project.
Recently, I was the guest speaker to the board of directors of a national environmental group, outlining the ecological consequences of too many livestock and too much meat. That group is potentially interested in starting a campaign to encourage people to eat less and better in the way of animal-source foods. I'm always happy to share that message, and am delighted to speak to additional groups on the topic.
