Kari Hamerschlag, Deputy Director of Food and Ag at Friends of the Earth will talk about the links between our food system, climate change, health, and social equity. She will spotlight a growing number of school districts in California that are using their massive purchasing power and innovative strategies to provide climate-friendly food that is healthier for students and the planet. She will also update us on key legislative proposals in Sacramento that are focused on helping schools and other public institutions reduce the carbon footprint of their food, including AB 479, the Healthy, Climate-friendly School Lunch Act.

Prior to her work at FOE, Kari worked for five years as a senior analyst with the Environmental Working Group where she focused on the U.S. Farm Bill and conservation policy.
