Life Before the Grocery Store: Understanding the Value of Food

Sophia Forstmann’s TEDx Talk will consider food consciousness and the importance behind appreciating one’s food. Based on personal experience, Forstmann believes that understanding the origins of food creates, not only an awareness, but a depth of understanding of the privilege of harvesting both plants and animals. Forstmann’s goal is to spark curiosity and to encourage people to ask questions about the sources of their food, the “system of food,” as well as types of food.
