A New England Food Vision:
What can the Northeast accomplish by 2060?
July 19th at 7:30 PM (Q&A to Follow)
Molly Anderson, one of the authors, joins us to speak about how New England can meet half of its food needs by the year 2060 through repurposing land, making changes in our diets to increase health, and increasing the number of farmers in our region. The vision is ambitious, but feasible with organized effort to change the narrative we tell ourselves about food, publicize the business advantages of local food, and revitalize democracy in our region. Molly will tell us what the Food Solutions New England network is doing to bring all this about.
Molly Anderson is the William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of Food Studies at Middlebury College in Vermont, where she teaches about hunger, fixing food systems, food sovereignty, and sustainable food systems. She collaborates on action and planning food systems at the state, national, regional, and international scales. She is a member of the Network Design Team of Food Solutions New England, which promotes the New England Food Vision.
