Manifestos On the Future of Food & Seed: Why are Twinkies Cheaper than
by Vandana Shiva
Monday, October 15 @ 7:00PM
At the Cambridge Family YMCA
820 Mass. Ave., Cambridge MA
Who gets paid for the food we eat? Why does our food taste like this?
Why do we live in a world where we produce food for 12 billion people
when there are only 6.3 billion people living, and still, 800 million
suffer from malnutrition and hunger, and 1.7 billion suffer from
obesity? The one and only Vandana Shiva (Earth Democracy, Water Wars,
Staying Alive) engages these crucial questions and more in her new
anthology, Manifestos on the Future of Food and Seed, laying out in
practical steps and far reaching concepts a program to ensure food and
agriculture become more socially and ecologically sustainable.
