Town & Gown's Virtual Lunch at the Forum
Dr. Anuradha Prakash, Professor and Program Director Food Science Program, Schmid College of Science and Technology
Green Food for a Healthy Planet
Concerns about the environmental impacts of our eating habits have prompted interest in plant-based foods. These foods are also associated with healthier lifestyles. Is a plant-based diet essential for health? Does healthy eating truly help with environmental sustainability? Can we eat to reduce food insecurity, improve access and affordability, protect our ecosystem, and reduce climate change?
Dr. Prakash will provide the context to understand the global challenge of the diet-environment-health trilemma, and information that one can put into practical use to reduce our environmental footprint while feeding the world.
