Wednesday, March 23, 2016 - Mother-and-daughter team Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé will present “The Sustainable Food Movement Rising” at 7:30 p.m. in Baker Ballroom. This event is free and open to the public.

The Lappés connect the dots between sustainable food, ecology and democracy, arguing that hunger isn’t caused by a scarcity of food but a scarcity of democracy. They will share the stories from the frontlines of people around the world bringing grassroots democracy to life to end hunger and sustain a healthy planet.

Anna's most recent book is Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It, and is the founder of Real Food Media. She works with sustainable food movement leaders around the country to catalyze storytelling and spark advocacy in communities nationwide. People working on climate change and energy-related issues are especially encourage to attend.
