Week 6

This week I was doing a little research in food education, and how the leaders in food education and healthy food advocacy world had to say about the path that America was on in terms of the health epidemic the country is facing today. This was sparked interviews in the past week of Growing Hope’s project manager and several impromptu interviews of community members and staff of Growing Hope. Every single person emphasized the importance of getting more community members involved with health programs and getting educated about how to improve their family’s health through better food choices, preferably in purchasing produce a little more closed to home. TED talks gave the stage to Jamie Oliver last December to give the world his ideas about the future of food, and he used his platform well, in reinforcing the point about goals needing to be set in America (and all over the world, of course) about food education. A fellow wordpress blogger re-posted Oliver’s talk and applied his ideas to service learning. You can watch the video above and then Check out the link!
