Science confirms that fixing broken food systems is an immediate priority.
FOOD PRODUCTION: Producing adequate and healthy food to meet the world’s nutritional needs is possible within planetary boundaries. This requires healing soils and producing food in harmony with the local ecology and socio-economic well-being. To this end, priorities should urgently focus on: ending food-driven deforestation; transitioning away from industrial animal agriculture; and redirecting subsidies to help farmers who are on the front lines of climate change.
FOOD CONSUMPTION: On the consumption side, diets must quickly shift from animal based, convenient highly-processed packaged foods to plant-based, whole grain “Real Food”: food that nourishes communities and the earth; respects human health, animals, social justice and the environment; and is as close as possible to its natural state without alteration. Transformation starts at home, with cooking and gardening together, and discussing these important topics. Large scale change can start with consumers.
