October 30 The Importance of Food Literacy
Chris Lambe, Director of Social Responsibility, The Mosaic Company

How much do you know about your food system? Given that fact that our global food supply will have to increase 70 percent in the next 40 years; given the amount of information and disinformation about our food system circulating on the Internet; and given the fact that most of us enjoy eating, isn't it time to uncover the facts, understand the choices we will have to make and start a real dialog about food? Lambe will explore some of the trade-offs we will have to consider, including one of the hottest debates in food: mineral fertilizer versus organic fertilizer.
