Have you heard of the term “food literacy”? In this talk Peggy Chan will share why solving the climate crisis will require more than just shifting diets. In fact, we will require fundamental food education reform beginning at a grassroots level - in schools and for professionals in F&B. Small changes done at scale through helping people to understand the impact of their food choices on their health, ecosystem and our economy. Peggy opened Grassroots Pantry in 2012 with a mission to raise awareness and knowledge on the benefits of plant-based cuisine. Emerging as the region’s most authoritative voice on organic sourcing, and sustainable food systems, Peggy developed Grassroots Initiatives Consultancy to help food service professionals understand how operational decisions affect the planet and its ecosystems. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
