In her TED talk on “How We Can Eat Our Landscapes,” Pam Warhurst said, “If you eat, you’re in!” Through each bite you take, you have the potential to promote peace through food. The PeaceMeal online course is a great way for you to think about ways that you can increase peace through food, and will help you to take tangible actions in your daily life to promote peace through food in yourself, your home, your community and the world.
Another food activist, Erika Allen, said, “Through food, we can change everything.” The food system is connected to all facets of our lives – our personal peace, our homes, our communities, politics, economics, the environment, the world! If we can create peace through food, we can create a peaceful world.
But we need help. Please join us!
