Go behind the scenes with Anna Lappé, national bestselling author and food activist, and Lindsey Allen, Acting Executive Director of Rainforest Action Network, for an intimate and lively conversation about the connections between the environmental movement and the food movement.
Anna and Lindsey will share recent triumphs and challenges and exciting new campaigns, including The Problem with Palm Oil. You'll learn about the ecological, climate, and human toll of the palm oil found in everything from granola bars to Girl Scouts cookies—and what we can do about it.
