Join us on November 14th as Mark Bittman reveals simple, ready-to-implement lifestyle tweaks for an overall recipe of eating more judiciously and consciously in our neighborhoods.

Now that he’s taught us How to Cook Everything, he’s got something important to share with us about the true impact of our food choices—on everything. CenterScene Public Programs is pleased to host food journalist, New York Times columnist and author Mark Bittman at The California Endowment on Wednesday, November 14th.

We might think we’re choosing more responsibly when we pick up the organic tomato versus the cheaper hormone-infused one to its right, but Mark Bittman argues that we’re not yet absolved of our duty to think, question and improve when it comes to what we eat. Bittman explains that food is still, in large part, sold to be profitable first and foremost, and that “organic” might not mean fair treatment of agricultural workers, sustainable farming practices, or a smaller carbon footprint. Despite newfound awareness around food, we remain in the thick of a health crisis mired with preventable diseases that have led to the US’ life expectancy being 45th in the world.

Bittman evangelizes that true change will happen when we understand our role in the big picture of what’s healthy— for the consumer, the planet, and those producing our food. During the program, hear Bittman’s thinking on hot button issues, including the ongoing debate around GMOs in California.
