Food & Environment committee
It has been said that how we eat represents our most profound engagement with the natural world. Human agricultural practices have done much to alter the planet we call home, yet many of us remain far removed from the processes that brought our dinners to our plates.
SPEC envisions a future where communities reduce their environmental foodprint by making conscious food choices and supporting progressive policies. The process involves building community around a new food culture. To reach this visions, SPEC’s Food & Environment Committee is committed to building a just, sustainable and resilient food system by engaging children, teachers, communities, NGOs, local businesses and government officials in learning about and supporting sustainable food systems.
